In March, Indianapolis activist Carl Rising-Moore helped an Army private, Brandon David Hughey, cross the border into Canada after the young man decided to desert rather than serve in what he believes is an illegal war. NUVO's Jim Walker profiles the contemplative, defiant Vietnam War era veteran who has become conductor of the new underground railroad. In an accompanying piece, Becky Oberg describes Hughey's safe passage into Canada, where he was met by the CBC and some Quakers.
