    Skidompha Sketches: Don Edwards

    08/02/2018 Duration: 08min

    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. If you would like to be considered as a guest on Skidompha Sketches let us know!
