War Reporter Sebastian Junger Turns Attention to Veterans’ Lives at Home

War Reporter Sebastian Junger Turns Attention to Veterans’ Lives at Home

Former war reporter Sebastian Junger, who embedded with multiple U.S. military units and earned an Academy-
Award nomination for his documentary "Restrepo," has now turned his attention to what happens when soldiers
return home. Junger suggests that American society alienates veterans and exacerbates their PTSD by not
supporting them. "The vets aren't messed up," Junger says. "We are. We as a society." Junger talks about his new
book, "Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging."
