On this Veteran's Day SheilahKast speaks to Lieutenant Kawika Segundo, a Purple Heart recipient and bone marrow donor. We'll hear about his donation experience and find out why the matching process is so difficult for some patients. If you would like to become a donor, information from the National Marrow Donor Program is available here.

Then, astrophysicist Mario Livio joins Midday to mark the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. Livio tells us how Einstein's theory shaped our understanding of space, time, and gravity, and how we can see it in action in our daily lives.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom.
