In David Finkel's new book "Thank You for Your Service," the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist examines what happens to soldiers when they return from war -- from a man who drives around with a shotgun while debating suicide, to another who dreams about dead bodies. Finkel explores their stories, their struggles for veteran services, and the battles they face once the war is over. He joins us in the studio.
