Today's news highlights the conflict in Iraq and all those involved in it. But what about those who served their country in other wars? Where are they? What are they doing? The Veteran's Home in Yountville, California is home to about 1100 veterans from WWII, Vietnam and Korea, many of whom are involved in the running of activities at the home. Victims of Agent Orange live alongside stroke patients, Alzheimers patients and many former soldiers who are now confined to wheelchairs. They live in military style with many of their peers. Some are abandoned at the home by their families, eventually cremated and buried in the Veteran's Cemetary. All live with their memories.
