Coming Back with Wes Moore premiered May 13, 2014

Coming Back with Wes Moore, a series executive produced by best-selling author and former Army combat veteran Wes Moore, aired in three parts on consecutive Tuesdays beginning May 13, 2014, on PBS (check local listings).  The three episode series tells the story of Wes Moore’s search for answers to some of the most difficult questions related to returning from war.  Moore’s journey takes him into the personal lives of different soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate back into society, establish new identities, and – for many – find a new mission. 

Each episode focuses on a different stage of coming home: “Coming Back” (May 13), “Fitting In” (May 20) and “Moving Forward” (May 27).
