Critical Pathfinder

This week features part one of an interview I did with Winston Crutchfield, fellow podcaster and publisher of the book Pathfinder which documents the role of Native Americans in World War II, including articles about the 82nd Airborne, Navajo Code Talkers, ceremonial dances in the South Pacific, and an oral history from 1st Sgt Hilton.

Part of the proceeds from Pathfinder benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, so you can support our veterans by purchasing a copy today.

Obama plans to address the importance of community colleges as well as programs for alternative energy, something HVCC is well-known for in the area.

Twitter is buzzinghttp://twitter.com/#search?q=obamahvcc about the visit, as expected, and there are a number of places where you can watch the online. Here are a few:
