Elise Forbes Tripp, author of “American Veterans on War: Personal Stories from WWII to Afghanistan,” Vietnam veteran Dave Bressem, and Charly Woehlke, who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, discuss their experiences in the military and working with veterans as we approach the final withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from Iraq.

Both Bressem and Woehlke now work in veterans services, so they can speak about their own experiences and those of other vets they’ve worked with.
