On Sunday, BBC Radio launched a new program, Americana, in which host Matt Frei presents an insider guide to the people and the stories shaping America today. The debut episode included an abridged version of a story by Joshua Phillips and CIR correspondent Michael Montgomery about the life and death of American soldier Jon Millantz, who struggled to come to terms with incidents of violence and prisoner abuse conducted by his unit in Iraq.
