For many soldiers war and combat continue when they return home.

Afghanistan and Iraq veterans are 75 percent more likely to die in car crashes than civilians. These vets are also twice as likely to commit suicide than their civilian counterparts. In addition, the unemployment rate of young male veterans who served in the past decade is 27 percent, three times higher than the civilian population.

Thursday at 6pm News 2's Cuthbert Langley will explore the challenges faced by many veterans as they return home in the Special Report: Wounds of War.
