Alaska Soldiers Readjusting to Life Back Home

By | June 8, 2012 - 4:23 pm

How do Alaska’s brave service men and women readjust to life in Alaska after months, or sometimes years, of serving in the U.S. military overseas? What are the challenges of re-establishing life in America and how can Alaskans, as family, friends, co-workers, better understand what our soldier’s have experienced and respond to their needs? Join me, Shelly Wade, and my guests, when we learn more about the issues facing returning Alaskan soldiers and resources in Anchorage and around the state that can help ease that transition. That’s on Hometown, Alaska.
