A Soldier's Journey from Iraq to Grad School

I heard this story on NPR this morning and will use it in my classes this week. Demond Mullins spent a year in Iraq with the National Guard. When he came back, he felt alienated and angry at what he had seen and done in the war. Now Mullins has found a degree of peace in higher learning. He now is in the CUNY graduate program in Sociology. This story, as well as the other three pieces that aired this week, need to be listened to by as many people as possible. It also makes me believe that I must begin doing research here in the Fort Hood area on the social psychological impact of the war on the veterans and their families here.
