Vermont’s military veterans face major challenges, including health care, education, employment and housing issues. And the needs of veterans of World War II, The Korean War, the Viet Nam War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are all different.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, we discuss veterans’ concerns with Vermont Veteran Services Director Clayton Clark, Iraqi Freedom veteran Shanna Lee Shushereba and John Tracy, state director for Senator Patrick Leahy.
Also in the program, VPR’s John Dillon provides analysis of the special Legislative Irene briefing session.
And we listen back to the voices in the news this week.
