TAMPA (2012-1-1) -

Off the Base is a special project of WUSF designed to spread understanding and make connections between the military and civilian communities.

Reporter Bobbie O'Brien talks frankly with two returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan about their struggles with PTSD, and investigates a controversial art exhibit about PTSD.

She also talks to a couple whose son was killed in Afghanistan. They want us to remember how their son lived, not how he died.
