As SDPB helps you prepare for the landmark documentary event "The Vietnam War" we're gathering South Dakotans impacted by Vietnam here on In the Moment to share their stories and provide insight to the legacy of the war here at home. We're joined today by former U.S. Senator Larry Pressler. He served two combat tours in Vietnam. He went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and represented South Dakota for more than two decades in Congress. He was the first Vietnam veteran to be elected to the U.S. Senate
