Brain Willson Blood On the Tracks

BMedia is close to finishing our 4th Variety Show and would like to release this short piece that will be in the next episode as a kind of "sneak preview".
Anti-war vet Brian Willson introduces his new book "Blood On the Tracks", a memoir of his fascinating life so far. Brian talks about his experiences in Vietnam, solidarity with the Central American revolutions in the 80s, and the meaning behind the title of his book. For info on the book tour visit www.bloodonthetracks.info.

Until watching the short film, I didn't realize he was the guy who lost his legs lying in front of a munitions train in 1987. Always a peaceful protester, Reagan declared him a terrorist at one point.
