Coming Back with Wes Moore, a new series executive produced by best-selling author and former

Army combat veteran Wes Moore, airs in three parts on consecutive Tuesdays began May 13, 2014, on PBS (check local listings).

The three episode series tells the story of Wes Moore’s search for answers to some of the most difficult questions related to returning from war.  Moore’s journey takes him into the personal lives of different soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate back into society, establish new identities, and – for many – find a new mission.

Each episode focuses on a different stage of coming home: “Coming Back” (May 13), “Fitting In” (May 20) and “Moving Forward” (May 27).

Coming Back

Author-Army veteran Wes Moore details the experiences of war veterans re-integrating into society, including why some can’t seem to get on with their lives while others can and do. The three-part series begins with the story of a friend-fellow officer who committed suicide not long after getting married and beginning a new career.
