Holiday 'Wine-ing' And Dining, And Kansas Veteran's Vietnam Memories Still Haunt Him

Thanksgiving is practically upon us, marking the start of the holiday season. Today, we listen back to a conversation with Master Sommelier Doug Frost and others to get you prepared for winter partying with some great wine and drink pairing ideas. Then, we sit down with Vietnam veteran and poet John Musgrave. More than 40 years after the end of the conflict, he still struggles to understand a war he was eager to join but disillusioned with once he got there.
