Veterans Coming Home: Stories of Service

About This Episode

Three documentary shorts from the Veterans Coming Home project look at challenges our veterans face when they leave the military, and why their struggles matter to veterans and civilians alike.

- In "Veteran’s Court," an innovative court of law in Phoenix that also serves as rehabilitation to keep vets who’ve been incarcerated from returning to jail.

"A Veteran Fights Homelessness in San Francisco" is one man’s personal mission to help vets with no place to call home – a reality he knows all too well. (KQED)

In "Veteran’s Bond," the powerful ties soldiers have to one another, from two Afghanistan veterans who reconnect years after combat. These stories reveal the continuing courage of our veterans long after military service ends. (WUCF)

Veterans Coming Home is an innovative public media project exploring the lives of post-9/11 veterans, the divide between them and their communities, and the stereotypes that veterans and civilians hold about each other. Why does this divide exist? How does it affect communities across the country? And why does it matter? Veterans Coming Home is a project by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Kindling Group, and Wisconsin Public Television.
