Operation Song, Episode 5: Who is the Hero?

operation_song_logo_2.jpg

  Veteran Nashville songwriters Don Goodman and Steve Dean come down to Chattanooga every Wednesday to meet with a group of veterans in a counseling session called Operation Song. The songwriters listen to the veterans talk about their experiences in a war zone and then they distil their experiences into a song. This song, called “I Fought A Battle,” tells the story of Joe Engle, a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and his wife Kayla who faced equally devastating challenges of her own at home.  

Richard Winham joined WUTC five years after the station began broadcasting to the Chattanooga area and the Tennessee Valley.
