Jeff Bakke dropped out of college in 1967 and joined the US Army. After accepting an Army offer to go to Officer Candidate School and a tour in Germany, Jeff headed to Vietnam in 1969.
After a year in Vietnam he returned to the United States, left the Army and enrolled in the University of North Dakota. His post-Army life took him to teach in East Grand Forks and a career as an educator and coach.
Jeff joined us to discuss his thoughts on the Ken Burns documentary airing on PBS — The Vietnam War
