War & Homecoming by Travis L. Martin cover

Hello, fellow community of readers!

The SCC Common Read team invites you to read, War & Homecoming: Veteran Identity and the Post-9/11 Generation by Travis L. Martin.

From the publisher—

In War & Homecoming: Veteran Identity and the Post-9/11 Generation, Travis L. Martin explores how a new generation of veterans is redefining what it means to come home. More than 2.7 million veterans served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their homecomings didn't include parades or national celebrations. Instead, when the last US troops left Afghanistan, American veterans raised millions of dollars for the evacuation of Afghan refugees, especially those who'd served alongside them. This brand of selflessness is one reason civilians regard veterans with reverence and pride.
