To date, tens of thousands of American troops have been wounded in the war in Iraq. What happens when they come home? For many wounded soldiers, the challenges upon returning home can be daunting. Yet the media often overlooks the stories of those who return home after serving in combat -- only to start a different battle.
HOME FRONT gives a face and voice to these soldiers and their families, told intimately through the Feldbusch family of western Pennsylvania, and their wounded son, Jeremy.
HOME FRONT captures the human story of Jeremy's return to civilian life in his small hometown, and his subsequent readjustment to family, community -- and most importantly, his new, altered self. The result is an unprecedented and insightful view of how one family copes with events that have forever changed them. A heartbreaking and inspiring true story, HOME FRONT gets behind the often-sanitized myth of war to reveal its true complications and costs.
