There are over 22 million veterans living in the U.S. today, but the number of Americans that say they know someone who has served in the armed services is shrinking. For the past month, KUNC and our partners at the Storycorps Military Voices Initiative and Harvest Public Media have been telling just a few of those stories. We learned about the struggles and the triumphs of Colorado’s veterans.

More visitors came to Colorado last year than ever before -- almost 78 million people -- and that brought more than 19 billion dollars to  the economy. Trails and hot springs are overflowing with people. Formerly pristine ecosystems are being damaged by people who don’t understand how fragile they are.

 

How did we get here? And what can we do to change course? We examine the problems, and possible solutions, in a 30 minute special presentation.
