Veteran Grapples with PTSD. He Saved Lives and Took Them Too – Oct 19, 2017

Our series of conversations with Vietnam veterans continues today. Bob Young was a medical corpsman – and has grappled with PTSD.

On November 9th, KRCB will host a screening of highlights from the Ken Burns Vietnam documentary. As part of this ongoing project, we’ve been talking with local veterans, like Bob Young – who enlisted in the Naval Reserve as a hospital corpsman at the age of 19. Steve Mencher talked with him about his service.
