Friday on Lake Effect: Transforming the Old Soldiers Home, 'Mount Liptak,' Bubbler Talk

Friday on Lake Effect:

It’s a Veterans’ Day show, starting with the effort to transform the iconic Old Soldiers Home into housing for at-risk and homeless veterans. Later, a Milwaukee filmmaker shares the story of his uncle, who joined the Navy at age 15 to fight in World War II. Plus, we’ll speak with a New York musician on a mission to bridge the gap between civilians and veterans, and Bubbler Talk takes on the rivalry between Illinois and Wisconsin.
