Social worker: Returning vets face transition

With this week's remembrance of Veterans Day, Deadline Now is considering the challenges facing soldiers returning from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Explaining those challenges on this week's edition is Maj. Dorian LeBeau, a veteran of the Iraq war.

She is a social worker helping to operate the Toledo Vet Center, a Veterans Administration facility on Byrne Road near Glendale Avenue in South Toledo.

Major LeBeau discusses with Jack Lessenberry, the host of Deadline Now and the ombudsman for The Blade, what veterans face as they transition back to civilian life.

Deadline Now will be broadcast at 8:30 tonight and 2:30 a.m. tomorrow on WGTE-TV, Channel 30.
