NEW FRANKEN-- Hmong soldiers now living in Northeast Wisconsin are fighting for veterans’ benefits. An estimated 60,000 Hmong soldiers fought for the U.S. in Laos during the Vietnam War. About half of those soldiers died. Most were forced to flee the country after American soldiers pulled out. The Hmong soldiers do not receive veteran's benefits including medical care. The Special Guerrilla Unit, or SGU, is trying to change that.
