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. 

Play the video to hear from:

Spc. Morgan Copeland, U.S. Army
Sgt. 1st Class Dan Harrison, U.S. Army
Cpl. Dan Bock, Jr., U.S. Army
Sgt. 1st Class Douglas Ziggleman
, U.S. Army

Play the Daily Minute bonus video #1 to hear how the veterans answer the question: Is Bowe Bergdahl a deserter?  Daily Minute video #2 has Charlie and his crew doing what all meat lovers should do when they visit St Louis: Get some ribs. Get an inside look at Bogarts Smoke House.
