Michael Richardson and Jacqueline Richardson Lawton

Each Thursday this November, South Carolina Public Radio presents Stories of Service highlighting conversations between veterans, active service members, and their loved ones from across the state.

In this edition, Jacqueline Richardson Lawton speaks with her father Michael Richardson of Beaufort, SC. Originally from Jacksonville, FL, Michael reflects on the new experiences — and weather — he encountered while attending basic training.

These interviews are recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. These interviews are fully funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American public.

Note: These segments are edited for length and clarity.
