America by the Numbers With Maria Hinojosa

Island Of Warriors

Season 1, Episode 2 of 8

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. We visit Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, to speak to some of the island's veterans. The men and women of Guam are American citizens and serve in our country's military at a rate three times higher than the rest of the country. We explore why Guam's returning veterans say they can't get the healthcare they need.
