Last week, we met local Vietnam veteran Martin Lesinski. We heard his poetry and learned about his acute sense of responsibility for men under his command. Today he tells reporter Steve Mencher about his own injuries.

The Vietnam War, a documentary series from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, continues tonight with part three on many PBS stations. Watch for KRCB’s presentation of the series this winter. On November 9, KRCB will host a showing of highlights from the series, followed by a panel discussion at Rialto Cinemas in Sebastopol.
