One Marine's View: American Homecomings-Something America needs to know about
So many warriors that are unknown heroes return home and many forget they even left or even know that went in the first place. Hopefully the below series will remind America and especially the younger generation that like those that went before us, there is a part of America that went to war, as many Americans went to the mall.
“American Homecomings,” is a project from Digital First Media that will chronicle the lives of returning veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and offer vets news, information about support services and a place to share their photos and memories. Eight soldiers from around the country have agreed to let reporters and photographers follow them for a year, shedding light on the challenges they face upon returning from the battlefield. Some have incurred brutal injuries or psychological scars, some have broken marriages, some have no jobs and some very intact lives. A new chapter in a veteran’s life will be posted here every Monday
