Event: For forty years, Norman Lloyd covered war for CBS News wherever he could find it. From Cambodia to Panama, from Vietnam to Iraq, his footage made Americans aware of the grim truths of frontline combat, whether on “60 Minutes,” “The CBS Evening News,” “48 Hours,” or scores of special programs and documentaries. Mr. Lloyd “embedded” himself with small Army and Marine units long before the term was in common use, shared the risks of common soldiers, and was himself wounded in action in Cambodia. This program will include gripping scenes of jungle warfare from Norman Lloyd’s coverage of the U.S. incursion into Cambodia, as well as tapes shot four decades later in Iraq. The latter vividly convey the unfamiliar roles our servicemen have had to assume in a radically new form of warfare. Mr. Lloyd and Lieutenant Colonel Steve Countouriotis, an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, will provide commentary and answer questions.
