With thousands of troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, this is the 16th-straight Thanksgiving that Americans have been at war. And there are thousands more U.S. members of the military serving in other parts of the world.

That means the holidays can be a tough time for those who are serving, and their families missing them back home. Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd talks about what it's like with Army veterans Brian Turner and Becca Lloyd. Turner served in Iraq and Lloyd served in Afghanistan.

This segment aired on November 24, 2016.
