When the United States launched a war in Iraq in 2004, our troops had more than fighting to do. Special projects officer William “Wes” Sumner was assigned the recovery of rare archaeological artifacts. But when he’d finished, he tackled a war torn zoo. Author Kelly Milner Halls will explain how this brave soldier helped recover the lost animals of Baghdad and built a bridge between two cultures in the process.
