Long Description: 
Today's veterans carry the added burden of not only dealing with economic challenges that face many American families, but also protecting the nation while serving in hostile environments overseas. "Our Veterans and Their Families: 21st Century Challenges" focuses on American veterans and the unique challenges they face in a new century that is prevalent with uncertain and perilous times. The show not only focuses on veterans but also the stories of their families. The broadcast covers four areas: Mental Health Needs, Redeployment Stresses, Reintegration Needs, and Special Needs of Female Veterans and includes insight from panelists who have intimate knowledge and experience in working with veterans.
