The cost of war is unforgivably high, but many forget that those who pay the ultimate price rarely receive the medical and psychological care they need upon return home. As America's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan continues to drive on, it's time to expose the traumas faced by American soldiers. Ann Jones shows the dead, wounded, mutilated, brain-damaged, drug-addicted, suicidal, homicidal casualties of our distant wars, taking us on a stunning journey from the devastating moment an American soldier is first wounded in rural Afghanistan to the return home.
