When the gear comes off and discipline and alertness wane,
veterans have to live with what their humanity had to stuff while killing. Record suicides, marriage break-ups, homelessness and addiction are plaguing returning warriors. On Wednesday, December 11th from 11am to Noon, Truth to Tell's Andy Driscoll and Lynnell Mickelsen talk with local veterans and officials assigned to their health and re-entry to discuss how “supporting the troops” doesn’t always extend to their lives after combat.
JOIN THE DISCUSSION. CALL 612-341-0980 during the show.
