Argentine veterans fight for recognition

In 1982, Britain and Argentina went to war over a group of islands which the British call the Falklands, and the Argentines call the Malvinas. Britain won that war, but Argentina still claims sovereignty. Argentina's government officially recognizes only those veterans who fought the British directly during the conflict. But that leaves some former soldiers out. Julia Kumari Drapkin has our story.
