Here are three more great-to-listen-to podcasts.

March 25 - He Gave His Life The Day We Dropped The Atomic Bomb For A Country He Was Not A Citizen Of

Marine Corps veteran Adam Earls tells the story of the Filipino’s who gave their lives for a country that was not their own. Adam also tells the stories from his own regiment -- the 1st Battalion 8th Marines, and his own family's loss.

March 30 - Finding A Missing Son Revealed the First War Crime

Weber County native Kim Dixon had a goal of finding all the WWII fallen from Weber County, Utah and has written more than 200 stories of these fallen.

One of the stories that stands out to her is the story of John W. Lambert, who volunteered for the US Navy at age 17, was captured by the Japanese after the surrender of Wake Island, and was executed as a prisoner of war -- perhaps the first war crime Japan committed against the United States in World War II.

Episodes are conducted by Stories Behind the Stars webmaster Tatiana Fallon. We plan to add new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday.

These episodes focus on our Stories Behind the Stars writers and the stories they have written.
