Another member of that great Vietnam Veteran Generation is featured in this episode. This veteran is even more unusual in that he served two tours in Vietnam before became a citizen.

In the article we learn that Schofield’s parents moved to Schenectady, New York from Canada in 1957. Young Pete joined the Army just in time to go to Vietnam where he served with distinction in the Corps of Engineers. He retired from the Army after 21 years of service.
