about these letters. they are just fascinating. uncle eddie was a member of the 101st airborne. that's a group called band of brothers and there's a part where he's trying to educate his children and they're watching band of brothers and there's a letter from his uncle eddie mentioning the main character in the book and film. it's really interesting and very, very moving story. that's coming up in the hour. >> i think they will. i remember when his mom did pass away and you probably saw it, too. he honored his mom. he had a huge tribute on his show and everybody was like whoa, there is really a soft side to this guy. you have a special tonight on bowe bergdahl? >> that's right. we're trying to take it out of the political arena. look at who is bowe bergdahl? we talk to friends of his, people in the platoon, the squad

western europe was free. one of those heroes was a young lieutenant who talks about falling into nazi arms. who bet to talk about this than this young man's nephew, stephen colbert. facing unimaginable odds, americans and allied troops stormed normandy, june 6th, 1944. among the paratroopers behind enemy lines that night, first lieutenant andrew tuck iii, or uncle eddie. tuck's nephew is stephen colbert, the comedian who actively thanks troops every chance he gets. lieutenant tuck belonged to the 101st airborne, made famous by the book and hbo mini series

afghanistan, he was reassigned to the 82nd airborne. and sunday, he'll parachute into normandy. i became part of a family of real american heroes, he said, the par troopers of the 82nd. wilson, you should know that specialist janice rodriguez joined the army not only two years ago, was assigned to the 101st airborne and just last month earned the title of the 101st airborne division air assault soldier of the year, and that's inspiring but not surprising when the women of today's military have taken on responsibilities, including combat like never before. i want each of you to know that their commitment to their fellow service members and veterans

al qaeda but they became disgusted and turned against them and begged the united states for weapons knowing that the u.s. military doesn't go about ethnically cleansing. there is no such actor on the ground today. there is no 101st airborne. there's no first division. no american military presence. this is the hobbsson's joyce facing the country. this is the reason that sunnis have not in groundswell manner risen up against isis. this is game of political pragmatism for them. >> i appreciate it. still to come, a history making vote in los angeles. the city looking to raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour. we'll talk about that next.

isis's former incarnation, al qaeda and iraq did use chlorine gas bombs as early as 2006. that was in iraq. an entire country that had american, over 150,000 american troop stations there. with respect to the current coalition effort, you don't have anything as sophisticated or powerful as the 101st airborne or u.s. marine corps in iraq or syria fighting these guys. there's absolutely going to be susceptible to this. the question is does isis have more stocks. if they do, how will they deploy them and against who? so far the only alleged victims have been the kurds. what happen is they start unleashing them. this could draw more foreign powers into this war and some kind of ground defensive.

either the taliban in afghanistan or the militias taking over, and pro iranian militias or whatever in iraq? >> the argument i would make, wolf, is precisely that. it is about the u.s. leaving. it does not work to pushing a whole lot of money into standing up a major military and then to say, you are on your own. this can be a multi year, and even a generational process. and its chances of success are tied to the commitment that we are going to make to make it work. and i'm not talking about sending back in the 101st airborne to afghanistan or to iraq. i am simply saying that we need to make the commitment to a sustained presence, a sustained commitment to helping the afghan

pants-ruining fear and ponder the reality of the actual job. i'm thinking about the men in 101st airborne over normandy. those guys jumped in the dark, surrounded by exploding ordnance. most of them didn't land anywhere near their intended drop zone and most were killed before they even hit the ground. today our men and women are still at it, still jumping head long into clear and present danger. if they can do that, the least i can do is this.

like in in kentucky, 552 students from two middle schools are squeezed into one as they wait for construction of a new school to accommodate all of them. a school where the air-conditioning and heating works properly. where there aren't multiple classes of kids in the same room struggling to cons sen trait as various lessons go on around them. now those plans have been shelved indefinitely. the 60 plus million dollars that would have paid for the new facility is gone. to put that in perspective, this is fort campbell. how many to the 101st airborne which has sent troops to the border on the president's orders and also the fifth special forces group. you might be familiar with their work. they're the commandos who entered afghanistan about a month after 9/11, the legendary green beret horse soldiers who carried out a mission to link up with the northern alliance and out of the taliban who were responsible for carrying out the september 11th attacks.

mountainous terrain, enduring fatigue, hunger, bad weather, dying, killing, and a lot of terrible wounds. they were rifle company commanders of the 506th regiment of the 101st airborne, the same regiment of the band of brothers, their motto, "we stand alone." >> sytes told me that bill taylor is the embodiment of the military academy cadet prayer, "make us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong and never be content with a half truth when the whole can be won." colonel sytes told me he's been enrag enraged, watching the president and his aides lie about bill

ukraine's president to launch investigations that might help his reelection effort. joining me is congressman patrick maloney who sits on the house intelligence committee and heard taylor's closed-door testimony today. congressman, thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> here's what sources are telling cnn, that there were audible sighs and gasps during taylor's opening statement. i would like your take on what it was like, and on what you heard as well. >> right. well, i know you know i can't get into specifics, but sure, my takeaway and emotional reaction is consistent with that. it was gripping testimony. he's a key witness. guys like bill taylor who spend 50 years serving as an infantry officer in vietnam with the 101st airborne, serving as a foreign service officer in some really hardship posts, guys like that don't pull their punches. and he came and told the truth. it's going to be a big part of getting that truth to the american public. >> so taylor directly contradicted gordon sondland's

bipartisan basis is that ambassador taylor's testimony shows that the president was pushing a change in policy with respect to ukraine. that's not an issue for impeachment, but it does show how dramatically and how quickly he is changing the u.s.' role in the world and it's foreign policy towards a country that previously has been considered an ally and someone that we were providing substantial security assistance. >> and as you point out, on a bipartisan supported basis over a very long period of time. >> ambassador, you know bill taylor and i say this statement that just came out from the m e white house that it is a smaer campaign from radical unelected bureaucrats waging war on the u.s. constitution. i suppose that one of those according to the white house is bill taylor. he was first appointed by george w. bush to an ambassadorship. he served under reagan and every president since. he's a west point graduate and served on the 101st airborne in
