Bob Emmons' interview of local resident Don Edwards reveals someone with a truly unique and fascinating background.

Edwards is a retired Army major general, as well as a former Vermont state legislator. Later, he became an aide and military advisor to his long-time friend Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Edwards ascribes the secret to Senator's popularity as "The Guy Next Door" personality.

Edwards later became a military commentator for Fox News after the 9/11 attacks.

Edwards also describes some of his remarkable experiences, including the time he and Bernie spotted (and eventually outed) a Medal of Honor imposter in a parade in Burlington.

Edwards also relates his involvement in legislation to help veterans who were exposed to deadly toxins in combat.

We first interviewed our friend Betsy Noyce in 1972 when she recounted her childhood memories of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

This time she vividly describes her exotic--and often funny--life as a military diplomat's child growing up in China just before the Communists took over in 1949.
