As our “First Wisconsinites” series wraps up, we explore the stories of veterans in Native American communities. We talk with the director of the Oneida Nation Veterans Department and hear about one veteran’s experience. We also look into the top Wisconsin news stories of the week, including a major project on the I-94 interstate being scrapped. Plus, we discuss the Trump administration’s plans to roll back a mandate requiring employer-provided health insurance to cover the cost of birth control.
