Vermont journalist chronicles military veteran challenges, from PTSD to burn pits to politics
Live call-in discussion: Vermont is home to tens of thousands of people who have served in the military, many from the Vietnam and Gulf War eras. And those veterans face challenges when they come home, from accesses to health care around PTSD and exposure to burn pits, to generational and political tensions in civilian life. This hour, we'll look at those challenges with one of the authors of a new book focused on veterans affairs.
Our guest is:
- Jasper Craven, former VT Digger reporter and author of Our Veterans: Winners, Losers, Friends, and Enemies on the New Terrain of Veterans Affairs (along with co-authors Suzanne Gordon and Steve Early)
The authors are attending a live event at the Burlington location of Phoenix Books at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13
Broadcast live at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2022; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
