Sen. Bob Kerrey on Vietnam

June 9, 2002

Former Senator Bob Kerrey talks with Steve Paulson about one bloody night in Vietnam that has haunted him for decades.  This story is at the center of his new memoir, “When I Was a Young Man”.  In 1969, Kerrey’s platoon of Navy SEALS killed at least 14 women and children during a raid on a village.  News of the carnage first broke last year.  And Kerrey landed in the middle of a national debate on U.S. conduct in the Vietnam War.
