FROM Michael Jernigan
A Wounded Veteran Reflects on Challenges at Home In the past eight years, more than 35,000 wounded American soldiers have returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan. One such veteran is Michael Jernigan, who was a Marine corporal on duty in Iraq when he was hit by a roadside bomb on August 23, 2004. Since then, he's been featured in the documentary, Alive Day: Home from Iraq and has written for the New York Times' Home Fires blog.
