Looks at the relationship between craft and the military, and profiles five practicing artisans who either were veterans or whose work honors them. Artisans covered in the program are: Ehren Tool, Gulf War veteran, who makes clay cups that draw attention to the realities of war and its consequences; Judas Recendez, Iraq War veteran who practiced ceramics at the Army Arts and Crafts Center and went on to get a BA in Fine Arts at the Corcoran College of Art + Design; Peter Voulkos, celebrated ceramic artist, who served in World War II, and earned his art degree through the G.I. Bill; Pam DeLuco, who created a book that presents the experiences of women veterans; Eugene Burks, Jr., a member of "the Old Guard", the Army's oldest active duty regiment, who makes leather horse tack for the caissons that transport the remains of fallen soldiers to Arlington National Cemetery.
