It's what every service-parent dreads - a phone call that begins: "We regret to inform you..." - and you're told that your child has been wounded in action, and may not make it. In this edition of Greta Talk, Greta sits down with two mothers who have been through that - Stacy Fidler and Siobahn Fuller's stories are about more than that... they're about what happens as their sons were brought to Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment.

The stories are of both hope and frustration - all part of a new book, Unbreakable Bonds: The Mighty Moms and Wounded Warriors of Walter Reed. We owe our wounded service people all honor and respect - and as you'll hear in this podcast, we owe their families even more.
