Military history major Nathan Byrne is interning at WOSU Public Media. During his internship he has aided Columbus Neighborhoods with research for future stories about the Columbus area during the Vietnam War. One of the projects involved helping with a digital timeline.

Nathan says, "Throughout my internship, I have been conducting various kinds of research for WOSU on how Columbus was affected by the Vietnam War and how the people of Central Ohio responded to it. For example, I learned about 'counter' protests, during which people showed their support of the war and disdain of the anti-war protests. It was interesting to find that a group of Cuban refugees showed their support of the war in a demonstration at the Ohio Statehouse."
