A retired U.S. Army colonel, who grew up in Lake County, believes America’s perpetual wars for an ever elusive peace in the post-Vietnam era are due in part to the nation’s all-volunteer military.

Heather Whitmore, Highland | "Absolutely. Nobody wants nuclear war. Whether it affects us or not, it's a ripple effect that causes problems."
Robert Garibay, Schererville | "Yes. They've got nuclear missiles. They need to work at keeping peace. Obama needs to go to North Korea and talk to their leader."

Esra Heisey, Chesterton, | "No. I haven't seen anything come to fruition so I don't need to worry about it."
