Rumble Strip Vermont: An American Life
June 30, 2015 7:41 PM - Subscribe

Vaughn Hood was a 118-pound barber when he was drafted into the Vietnam War… most men didn’t survive their first three-month tour. Now Vaughn Hood runs a hair salon in St. Johnsbury with his wife, Bev. For a couple days, [host Erica Heilman] sat and talked with him in the back of his salon. We talked about war, about hard work, about survival, and hairdressing.

Here is the story of an extraordinary American life.

This story was co-produced by Erica Heilman and Larry Massett.

I heard this podcast when Scott Carrier put it up at Home Of The Brave, and man, it is one heck of a thing. Not sure what I think of how Hood treated his orders, but I wouldn't be surprised if it saved lives like he claims.

I hate that TAL still only keeps their podcasts up for a week or so and then you can't download them anymore.

You can stream 'em. Rumble Strip keeps 'em up, I think. & the newest one has Joe Frank!
