Paying A Debt of Honor

Join Joan Cartan-Hansen for this special edition of Dialogue in Washington, D.C. for the Medal of Honor ceremony honoring Idaho resident Vernon Baker and six other African-American soldiers who fought in World War Two. In addition to covering the ceremony, Cartan-Hansen also talks with Baker about the event that earned him the Medal of Honor and gets perspective from a military historian on why it took so long for the medals to be awarded.
