In The Moment ... August 24, 2017 Show 163 Hour 1

What's the legacy of Vietnam in South Dakota? How has our cultural and political landscape been changed by combat veterans, by the music and art of the time, and by those who raised their voices in opposition to the war? Gervase Hittle lives in Hill City. He joins us to talk about Kent State, Vietnam, and become a human being instead of a USMC rifleman.

The Initiative and Referendum Task Force held their third meeting in Pierre yesterday. Augustana University assistant professor of Political Science Dr. Emily Wanless chairs the task force.  She joins us to provide update on the process.
