Military Matters

Welcome to Military Matters, a podcast from Stars and Stripes. Listen as host Rod Rodriguez explores the topics that matter to service members, veterans, and the people who support them.

Jul 10, 2020

Next week, as the Military Matters podcast returns with the start of our second season, we will focus on the case of Spc. Vanessa Guillén, whose disappearance April 22 from Fort Hood, Texas, garnered the attention of officials and celebrities.

Tragically, remains discovered in late June in woods not far from the Army post were determined to be Guillén’s. Her family is devastated, a suspect is dead, and a possible co-conspirator is in custody.

Many questions remain, including how the military handled Guillén’s family’s claim that she was sexually harassed, and how the investigation into her disappearance was conducted.

Efforts by Guillén’s family to bring attention to her disappearance also shed light on the disappearance of other soldiers from Fort Hood.

As we enter season two, Stars and Stripes’ podcast team wants to cover the stories that matter to you.
