blitz.jpgNot to be outdone by ABC’s tribute “The Fallen,” Wolf Blitzer will host a one-hour special “Wolf Blitzer: Behind the Lines” this Sunday as part of Memorial Day Weekend. The show, which will first air on Sunday during Late Edition’s second hour, features stories from U.S. troops serving in the Iraqi theater.

It’ll draw on Blitzer’s recent week-long Middle East swing, which included stops in Kuwait, Qatar, and Iraq (where he spent time with CentCom Chief Gen. John Abizaid), and time aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson. CNN also reports Blitzer visited the Iraqi base at Umm Qasar in southern Iraq where he interviewed Iraqi troops about defeating the insurgency.

The special will re-air on Sunday at 5 p.m. (ET) and Monday at 3 p.m.
