On Episode 38 of Veteran Voices: The Oral History Podcast, we talk with Bob Dvorchak, legendary Pittsburgh sports writer, national journalist, war correspondent, and author of Drive On: The Uncensored War of Bedouin Bob and the All-Americans.

 

 

Bob Dvorchak is an award-winning author and journalist, whose career spans more than four decades from Associated Press national correspondent to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. In his forties, he was asked by AP to cover the Gulf War (1990-91) and embedded with US armed forces deployed to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.  His latest book, Drive On: The Uncensored War of Bedouin Bob and the All-Americans, is a personal and historical reflection upon his life as a journalist, war correspondent, and the soldiers of the famed 82nd Airborne Infantry he came to know as “brothers” during the war.
