Jim Webb's son just recently returned from Iraq. In honor of Father's Day, Jim sat down with NPR's All Things Considered and spoke about the military traditions in families. Audio available at the site.
"They go into the military because they love their country, because they have family traditions - in the case of my family all the way back to the American Revolution," Webb tells Renee Montagne. "And when the time comes, there's a sense of obligation among many to live up to the people who went before you."
