Learn why some veterans easily reintegrate into society after deployment and why some struggle.

Coming Back with Wes Moore, a new series executive produced by best-selling author Wes Moore, airs on WXXI-WORLD in  three parts on November 13, 2015 at 7 p.m. The series recounts 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 into society, establish new identities and – for many – find a new mission.

This presentation of Coming Back with Wes Moore is also a part of VETERANS CONNECTIONS programming on WXXI. To draw awareness to the issues of local veterans, WXXI and the Little Theatre convened a Veterans Affairs Task Force to identify the most pressing needs and issues facing veterans and their families in the Greater Rochester area and to make recommendations about ways that WXXI/Little programming and outreach can help address those needs.
