Basic Training: For 'Civilian' Life

Hosted by

Some 30,000 combat veterans will be returning to California every year for the next few years, and many will make the transition to civilian life by attending community college. Harold Martin remembers coming home from combat in Vietnam just six days before becoming a full-time student. Now he's Associate Professor of Psychology at Pasadena City College. He's also part of the Veterans' Learning Collaborative, which includes a course he teaches, called Boots to Books. Dr. Judith Broder founded The Soldiers Project, a network of licenses psychotherapists who support both the veterans and their teachers.
