“A must-read for anyone who wants to make the phrase, ‘Support the Troops,’ more than a slogan.”–Former US Senator Max Cleland
“”Weep, America, cringe, America. We talk a good game about honoring all those who go into harm’s way for our sake, but do we go beyond fine words and a few gold-plated flagship medical facilities? Aaron Glantz is in our face on the military treatment facilities, the VA, and civilian society at large.” –Jonathan Shay , Achilles in Vietnam and Odysseus in America The War Comes Home is the first book to systematically document the U.S. government’s neglect of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan http://amzn.to/fVZtBg Aaron Glantz, who reported extensively from Iraq during the first three years of this war, interviewed more than one 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.
