Vietnam War Veteran Brian Willson
Brian Willson lost both legs when he protested arms shipments from the Concord Weapons Depot in California to Nicaragua. What gave him the courage to risk his life was an incident that occurred almost 20 years earlier. In 1969 he had gone to Vietnam, ignorant of the history of that country and ready to fight. But in his first weeks at a Vietnamese airforce base in the Mekong Delta he rode his jeep into a village that had just been bombed. The sight of the dying women and children changed his life. He is now trying to reach young soldiers who might be called to war. You hear him tell the story that has haunted him all his life.
(First aired on: Hearts and Minds on KMUD Radio in California).
