But what do you do when they have stories that they don’t want to tell? Indiana University student David Crosman brings us the story of his Grand Uncle, Louis Adams, and his secretive involvement in the Vietnam War.

Elder Heart is the creation of former special forces Green Beret Magnus Johnson, who found himself apathetic and disconnected when he came to Indiana after eight years of military service. It was through working with Nashville Artist Jim Connor that Johnson began to feel connected to civilian life once again, and he is now offering a similar outlet to other veterans and community members through the creation of public art through Elder Heart. Johnson speaks with WFHB News Director Alycin Bektesh about the purpose of his organization, and the difficult transition between soldier and civilian, that results in more than eight thousand veteran suicides a year, for today’s daily local news feature, courtesy of Interchange.
