The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle Against America's Veterans

A conversation with independent journalist Aaron Glantz

The War Comes Home is the first book to systematically document the U.S. government's neglect of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Aaron Glantz, who reported extensively from Iraq during the first three years of this war, interviewed more than a hundred recent war veterans, and here he intersperses their haunting first-person accounts with groundbreaking investigative journalism. This timely book does more than provide us with a personal connection to those whose service has cost them so dearly. It compels us to confront how America treats its veterans and to consider what kind of nation deifies its soldiers and then casts them off as damaged goods.

Books will be available for sale and signing by the author.

This program is part of the ongoing Other Voices series produced by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. It will be broadcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27, webcast at www.MidPenMedia.org, and rebroadcast throughout April. Be a part of the live studio audience!

Free and open to the public.
