The After Effects of War

After eight years of engagement, President Obama says all US combat forces will be out of Iraq by the end of December.  As we look back on this extended deployment of American troops, we've been digging through our Boots on the Ground series, and want to share the story of Colby Buzzell.

Buzzell has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and struggles with addiction. A collection of Colby Buzzell's Iraq War blog entries can be found in his book, "My War."

For more stories like this one check out our series, Boots on the Ground: Stories from the War in Iraq.
