Description

On this episode of Our American Stories, retired U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Michael Schlitz tells us how he enlisted in March 1996 and served in several positions including Rifleman and Platoon Sergeant. While in Baghdad, Iraq on February 27, 2007, Mike and his crew were on a road-clearing mission when their vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED). Jon Elfner helps tell the story behind Charles Eliot's claim that, "all a man needs for a good education is a 5-foot bookshelf"  and what came to be known as "The Harvard Classics."
