Your Call 041508 Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro

What is life like for returning soldiers? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with former talk show host Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro about their documentary, Body of War, the moving story of Tomas Young, a paralyzed veteran, dealing with the aftermath of occupation. Since the occupation of Iraq in March of 2003, nearly 30,000 soldiers have been wounded, some severely. How are Iraqi veterans being taken care of? And how do they cope with physiological and physical injuries of the war? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro, co-directors of the documentary film Body of War
