The Cost of War

Updated:
St. Louis, Missouri - As war veterans come home and try to settle in to some sort of normalcy, many wonder what is it all for? Charlie LeDuff talks to veterans who gave so much, only to come home to sub-standard medical care. The country they served with honor is falling short of its promises to protect the brave.

Charlie LeDuff heads to the heart of America, St. Louis, Missouri, to ask veterans at VFW Post 3944 what we gained or lost in the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam and more.

    NAFTA is 20 years old. Back then it promised us it would create jobs for all of us and stop the wave of illegal immigration from Mexico. So what happened to those jobs and why are the immigrants still coming?
