"Veterans Hikes" at Indiana Dunes State Park

  • Today: We have two conversations about highway projects around northwest Indiana this construction season. Indiana Department of Transportation LaPorte District spokesperson Cassy Bajek reviews the area's transportation projects and Porter County highway superintendent Jim Polarek looks at the local projects. Indiana Dunes Hiking’s Ron Seman tells us about the first of (what the group hopes) will be more "veterans' hikes," this weekend at Indiana Dunes State Park. PTSD affects many veterans, and the disorder can lead to anxiety and even to attempts of suicide. So Seman says getting veterans, their family, their friends, and all veterans group supporters outdoors will make a difference.
