An in-depth look at the unique challenges facing today's veterans.

American families are making many new sacrifices with today’s economic turmoil. But perhaps the deepest sacrifice being made today is by families with members in the Armed Services. “Coming Home” will focus on the challenges facing today’s veterans by examining their mental health needs, redeployment stress, re-integration needs and the special needs of female veterans.

Coming Home: Arming Veterans for New Challenges airs Sunday, May 30 at 11 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).

America is facing many challenges as the first decade of a new century comes to an end. We face an ongoing national and international economic crisis while battling two wars overseas. Veterans today carry the added burden of not only dealing with these economic challenges, but also protecting our nation while serving in hostile environments overseas.

Coming Home: Arming Veterans for New Challenges will focus on these American veterans and the unique challenges they face in a new century rife with uncertain and perilous times. In addition to focusing on veterans, the program also examines the effects their deployment and experiences have on their families.
