This is a video from VETERANS COMING HOME, 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 (VCH) is a project by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Kindling Group, and Wisconsin Public Television. This video was made with help from Kansas City Public Television.
