Steven Tice, a War Vet as National Treasure

Listen to or download, "Steven Tice, a War Vet as National Treasure"

Steven Tice was a young soldier severely wounded in one of the most horrific battles of the Vietnam War, Hamburger Hill. Four decades later, he is a National Treasure sharing his experiences of war and healing with today's war veterans.

After an extensive convalescence Steven married, returned to college for a graduate education, became a father for the first time...and found his marriage suffering too. Counselors at a local Veterans' Center encourage Steven to understand what had happened to him in war. When he did, Steven went on to become a counselor to war vets too. In this show he shares his experiences of war from the lens of compassion honed over four decades.
