Monday on Lake Effect: Remembering Lance Sijan, 'Everyone Brave is Forgiven,' and Vietnam War Music

Monday on Lake Effect:

On our Memorial Day edition of the show, the sister of a Vietnam War hero from Milwaukee works to commemorate his legacy here and everywhere. Then, writer Chris Cleave talks about the lengths he went through to research his latest novel, set in World War II England. Plus, there was a lot that divided people during the Vietnam War. But a new book makes the case that at least one thing united people: music.


  • Janine Sijan-Rozina and Steven Miller, authors, This Life – The Lance Sijan Story; Captain Nathan Wallin, Air Force Air National Guard
  • Chris Cleave, author, Everyone Brave is Forgiven
  • Doug Bradley and Craig Werner, authors, We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War
