Veterans to protest 'crisis' at Standing Rock

About 50 to 60 Native veterans are expected to participate in a protest march on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation on Tuesday.

The veterans are marching on behalf of elders who say the tribal council is not responding to their needs. The protest will occur at the same time as a council meeting.

One major issue is fuel costs. Elderly families say they can't afford to heat their homes and need assistance.
