Public perceptions of American veterans after 9/11 | IN 60 SECONDS

Much to the surprise of the public, a vast number of post-9/11 US military veterans have successfully attained higher education and economic stability over the last 10+ years. AEI’s Rebecca Burgess explains that despite this positive outlook for America’s military, public perception has cast many of these brave men and women in a “broken veteran” narrative that hinders countless others from succeeding back on the home front.
