Puff-Paint Paul Hornung Jersey

Jason Quick and Paul Carlson from Concerned Veterans for America tell us what they’re doing to reform the VA. But first, we talk about the start of the NFL season and wonder why we’re sports fans. Finally, we remember September 11th and try to understand why fifteen years ago feels like yesterday.
