Sending a child to war is one of the hardest things a parent can do. Now some mothers are trying to compile their thoughts in a book. Janie Reinart and her friend Mary Anne Mayer have been soliciting and going through essays from Ohio mothers of soldiers. The works show the pride moms have for their sons' or daughters' service, but also the fear of what could happen. Their working title is Love You More Than You Know: Thoughts of Ohio Mothers Sending their Sons and Daughters to War. They hope to attract a publisher and use the proceeds to help fund Wounded Warrior programs. Join us Friday at 9 as we talk with Ohio mothers about their stories. We'll take your calls as well.

Guests
