Iraq War Vets Helping Other Vets

August has not been a good month for US service members from Massachusetts serving in Iraq. Corporal Jeremy Bouffard, and Staff Sergeants Robert Pirelli, Alicia Birchett, and Joan Duran were all killed while serving in Iraq this month.

Soldiers who do come back to the Bay State face the challenge of re-integrating with a civilian population, after spending months at war.

Two veterans of the Iraq war have just been hired by the state's Department of Veteran Services to help returning vets. We speak with Lance Corporal James Crosby and Sergeant Sean Lunde.
