'Last Letters Home' of Fallen U.S. Soldiers

The emotional letters from fallen soldiers in Iraq are the subject of a new HBO documentary, Last Letters Home: Voices of Americans from the Battle of Iraq. NPR's Tavis Smiley talks to Academy Award-winner Couturié, the director and producer of the film, and Cathy Heighter, mother of soldier Rasheen Heighter.
