The reading was followed by a discussion with Klay, along with Intrepid owner and Iraq war veteran Matt Victoriano, and Intrepid staff members and veterans Ryan Wetter and Logan Mehl-Laituri (Duke Divinity ’13). The discussion was moderated by D.G. Martin of UNC-TV’s “North Carolina Bookwatch” and veteran of the US Army’s Special Forces.
