Tune in to CNN tonight at 9:00 pm EST for the premiere of The War Comes Home: Soledad O’Brien Reports! This collaborative documentary by Mediastorm and Soledad O’Brien provides a moving perspective on the impacts of war for veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
According to statistics, “Approximately every hour a U.S. veteran commits suicide. A quarter of all returning veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress, with families and communities hanging in the balance.”
“As the U.S. prepares for the final drawdown of soldiers from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, Soledad O’Brien and MediaStorm take an intimate look at two veterans and their families’ lives as they struggle with the transition from war to home.”
**In case you miss the premiere: Encore presentations will air on CNN at 12:00 am EST & on Sunday, August 17th at 7:00 pm EST.
