Bill was the first radio host to be embedded with our troops in Iraq, broadcasting live the week before Christmas 2003. The men and women of the 432nd Civil Affairs unit celebrated the capture of Saddam, dodged incoming RPG shells and talked with their loved ones back home via the Bill LuMaye Show, live from Iraq.
