Latino Memorial Day
Mon. 5/30 at 730pm: This week, Raices honors Latino military service with a set of two interviews with veterans from the Vietnam and Iraq wars.
To commemorate Latino military service in times of conflict and war, we interview John M. Garcia, former NM Secretary of Veterans Services and formerly Commissioner of the NM Veterans Service Commission. He served in Vietnam as a member of the Army's 4th Infantry Division. We also talk with Arturo Lemos, a UNM student who formerly served in Iraq and in the Mediterranean as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Host: Cristina Baccin
