For many of veterans, the transition back to civilian life is a big challenge. Journalist Sebastian Junger explored that subject in his most recent documentary "The Last Patrol."
Junger's previous two films "Restreppo" and "Korengal" followed a platoon of U.S. soldiers at a remote base in Afghanistan. In "The Last Patrol," Junger hiked along the railroad lines of the Northeast corridor with two veterans from that platoon, talking about war and what it did to them.
Brendan O'Byrne is an army veteran and a former team leader in Battle Company's Second Platoon.
- “The Last Patrol,” the final film in the journalist’s series about the war in Afghanistan, wraps the trio that includes the 2010 Oscar-nominated “Restrepo” and its recent follow-up, “Korengal.”
