Soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are slowly returning home.  So what challenges do they face when they come home?  How hard is it to find a job?  Go to school?  Communicate with their family and friends?  We talk to experts and veterans about readjusting after life as a soldier. 

The Veterans Affairs Southern Nevada Healthcare System hosts the "Welcome Home Celebration" for veterans on June 6 at the Suncoast Hotel.  Are you a veteran?  Share your stories: call 258-3552 during the live show  or leave your comments in advance.
