War Stories: Dave Carlson

During the 1960’s, many young American men faced a difficult choice, enlist in the military and possibly choose your path during the Vietnam War or wait to get drafted and then who knows where you might end up. In this week’s War Stories, we introduce you to retired U.S. Army veteran Dave Carlson, who chose to enlist and says it was the right decision that paid off in a big way in his post military career and life.
