What happens when veterans return home from war? How do they deal with the loss of friends who died before their eyes? How do they re-adapt to work, to the neighborhood... even to being with their own families? Veterans share their stories about PTSD, broken marriages, where they turn for help when therapy doesn't work, and how one writing program is helping them with the memories.
