Legacy of Kerry's War Days

Thirty-three years ago, a young John Kerry, recently returned from Vietnam, testified before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about the war. His comments drew applause and criticism at the time, as they do today. Vietnam continues to define Kerry as he now looks at a new war and answers questions about what he would do differently there. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.
