A Veteran of Today's Wars

By Anne Milliken

Salt Lake City – Saturday, November 11th is Veteran's Day, a day devoted to honoring U.S. military veterans across the country. It's especially poignant that during an unpopular war, Americans on both sides are making it clear that they support the troops in their efforts in Iraq. This was not the case for soldiers returning from Vietnam.
Producer Anne Milliken brings us this profile of Utah veteran Quinn Overton of Orem, who, by the age of 24 had already fought in two wars in Kosovo and Iraq.
