A Nun's Anti-Nuclear Crusade December 28, 2017
Until a few years ago, the Y-12 National Security Complex in Tennessee was considered one of the most secure nuclear sites in the world. But that changed in the summer of 2012, when three people broke in, using hammers and lock-cutters from a local hardware store. They were peace activists: a house painter, a Vietnam War veteran, and… an 82-year-old Catholic nun. Reporter Dan Zak tells us the story.
