    When Pamela Stokes Eggleston met her husband Charles, she lived strictly in the civilian world. Until 9/11, when everything changed. Charles was deployed in the first year of the Iraq War in 2003 as a sniper, Special Forces. Today, he’s a wounded warrior, the only survivor in his unit after an IED blast in Mosul in 2005. And Pamela is a military spouse and a caregiver. Host Al Letson talks to her about how their lives have changed—and what it means to be a military family in America today.

    Then, Al reflects on the ways that American society sees its veterans, and closes the episode with a montage of the voices of veterans and the people close to them.
