Returning Home

Nov 11, 2011

Last month, President Barack Obama announced the U.S. will withdraw troops from Iraq by the end of 2011. 100,000 troops have already been removed and the latest withdrawal will bring the last 40,000 home. Today, where we live, as we celebrate Veterans Day a conversation about the transition from military life to civilian life for the thousands of Veterans who have and will return from Iraq and Afghanistan.

We’ll be joined by WNPR’s Lucy Nalpathanchil, who has been covering military issues in Connecticut and around the country. We’ll also hear from veterans working to help other veterans adjust to life after war. We want you to join the conversation. Are you a veteran who has had to make the adjustment? What are the benefits and struggles of being a veteran in the civilian world today?
