Coming Home: How Veterans Reacclimate After the War
AIR DATE: June 6, 2012
Soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are slowly returning home. So what challenges do they face when they come home? How hard is it to find a job? Go to school? Communicate with their family and friends? We talk to experts and veterans about readjusting after life as a soldier.

Newly re-employed on 20 August. Maybe a follow up on the broadcast is in order? The Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce has hired me as their Operations Manager. They did the 'Hire the Veterans' effort.
Please advise and thank you,
