09/17 - Louisiana Veterans Coming Home

What challenges face our returning veterans?

Soldiers returning from the Vietnam Conflict in many cases faced a hostile homecoming. Post-9/11 veterans, conversely, have been welcomed with open arms. Despite the different reception the American public gave them, both sets of soldiers have shared similar difficulties transitioning back to civilian life. Last year as part of the Veterans Coming Home public media initiative, we explored the challenges that returning veterans face and the numerous state resources that are available to them.

Louisiana Public Square explores these issues in a special town hall event.

Airs Wednesday, September 27, 9:00 pm on LPB.

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.
