The Vietnam War didn't necessarily change Mike Corbett's opinion on authority, but it taught him that people didn't always agree with each other

"It gave me a new perspective on the range of peoples opinions about authority," he says. "There was a lot of disagreement. Some were very passionate, while others didn't care."

The war was his first experience seeing a nation divided.

"Our opinions don't always match with each other 100%."

Mike Corbett, 74, lives in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He spent more than four decades as a orientation and mobility specialist for the blind and visually impaired.
