Throughout December, Weekend Edition will begin a four-part series, exploring how the wars have affected individuals and their loved ones. The series begins in Portland, Oregon on Dec. 7, with the story of a veteran whose mental health and life have been shattered by his experiences in Iraq.

Host Liane Hansen speaks with Oregon Public Radio's April Baer, who reported the story of John Blaufus, an Iraq war veteran. Blaufus was diagnosed with acute post traumatic stress disorder when he returned to the U.S.
