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.

    LeDuff: There are conflicting accounts about what happened between the cop and the teen.   There is no videotape and so we may never know what really happened. But after getting an unprovoked beating with a traffic cone in Ferguson myself, I wondered what it must be like to be on the other side of the shield.

    The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on. There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?
