Ottawa Citizen has the story:

On June 2nd, CPAC will be airing a documentary into what it calls the Afghan war’s secondary and often overlooked battlefield – the home front. Hosted by Esprit de Corps’ Magazine’s Scott Taylor, Homecoming: The Casualties of War offers what the television station describes as an in-depth examination of the emotional and psychological suffering of Canada’s soldiers returning from the war in Afghanistan and families of the fallen. It features interviews with General Walter Natynczyk, Senator Romeo Dallaire and a number of veterans who fought in Afghanistan. The hour-long documentary explores post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), survivor’s guilt, anxiety and other illnesses that continue to plague soldiers after the military battle ends.
