In January, Tina Richards traveled to Washington D.C. for a peace protest and never came back. Her son is an active marine who is suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and when the Marines called him to ask him to prepare for a third tour she decided to become a permanent lobbyist for peace. Weekend America guest host Tess Vigeland talks with Tina Richards about being a citizen lobbyist.
