‘Consequences of War’–Veterans Incarcerated at Higher Rates and Face Longer Sentences

Recommended Posts

Late in the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, Brockton Hunter, a defense attorney in Minnesota, was having drinks with a friend from law school. Hunter had served in the Army before becoming a lawyer; his friend had been in the CIA. The conversation turned from that day’s devastating attacks to what they felt would inevitably follow.

“Both of us understood that we were going to be going to war like we hadn’t since Vietnam,” Hunter said.
