Each Thursday this November, South Carolina Public Radio presents Stories of Service highlighting conversations between veterans, active service members, and their loved ones from across the state.

In this edition, Kym Klapperich and Roger Thompson of Traveler's Rest, SC discuss a friend Roger made during his first tour of duty who later influenced him to convert to Judaism.

These interviews are recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world, and facilitated by Franchesca Peña. These interviews are fully funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American public.

Note: These interviews are edited for length and clarity.
