AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS WITH MARIA HINOJOSA
Island of Warriors

Air date: Fri., Nov. 11, 8:30 pm

 

Pacific Islanders serve in the U.S. military in disproportionally high numbers, and have suffered the highest casualty rates in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The men and women of Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, are American citizens and serve in our country’s military at a rate three times higher than the rest of the country. Learn why the island’s returning veterans say they can’t get the healthcare they need.
