Claiming the lives of over three million combatants and civilians alike, the Vietnam War was met with intense public resistance and embodied in no less than the unyielding protests of youth, including the fallen students of the Kent State University massacre.

Commemorating this tragedy, 46 years ago this week, as well as those who lost their lives in the harrowing war itself, Paul and Jordan speak with Vietnam War veteran, Bill Lawson.  Today a distinguished philosophy professor, Bill shares his experience on the war's frontlines, what it  taught him about race and politics in America, and starting life again after war.
