As a complete U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan approaches, certain questions are receiving more attention. What challenges do our veterans face when they come home? And what are we doing to help or hurt their chances of integrating fully into civilian life?

Today, PRI’s The World is dedicating an entire show to the voices of servicemen who’ve faced hardships coming home. Marco Werman, senior producer and host for The World shares some of those voices with listeners of the Takeaway. Listen later today to the episode of The World or join the conversation on Twitter by using hashtag #returningvets.

PRI’s The World is a co-production of the BBC World Service, PRI, and WGBH Boston.
