American Veteran: The Return (S1EP3 PBS Tues 9 Nov 2021)



The Return: Hollywood war stories seem to end with the hero’s return. In reality, the road back to civilian life is less certain.  For some, there were ticker-tape parades; for others, protests, anger, and silence. Some veterans recall the confidence they brought home, while others remember thinking, "What am I going to do now?"  Hosted by actor Wes Studi, Vietnam War veteran (Army) and Native American (Cherokee) activist.
