Today we learn about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. This program honors Vietnam veterans whose lives were cut short as a result of their service in Vietnam, however, they are not eligible for inscription on the wall under Department of Defense guidelines. Tim Tetz is the Director of Outreach for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and joins us with more.

Black Hills State University students are helping share stories of veterans buried at five national cemeteries in South Dakota through the Veterans Legacy Program. It's a collaboration with the National Cemetery Administration. We talk with Kelly Kirk, instructor of history at Black Hills State.
