Troop Greeters

November 11, 2009 11:35 a.m.

On call 24 hours a day for the past five years, a group of senior citizens has made history by greeting more than 900,000 American troops at a tiny airport in Bangor, Maine. "The Way We Get By," a film directed by Aron Gaudet and produced by Gita Pullapilly, is an intimate look at three of these greeters as they confront the universal losses that come with aging and rediscover their reason for living. Also, the USO San Diego talks about how it is organizing local residents to greet U.S. service men and women returning from war.
