Through Veteran's Eyes (rebroadcast)
As of early 2010, more than 2 million US troops have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Larry Minear, a researcher on international and internal armed conflicts, has spent a lot of time talking to more than 175 of these veterans, many of whom came from New Hampshire and Vermont. He talked to them about what motivated them to go to war, what they did once they went over, and how they rejoined society upon their return. Through the pages of his book Through Veterans’ Eyes we learn about the role troops from these two states played and the policies put in place to serve them when they got back.
