We all recognize the sacrifices of those who serve in the military and fight in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Less appreciated are the struggles of their families. L.A. Times' Steve Lopez shares the stories of military wives struggling to keep house and home together, while worrying about the fate of their husbands in far-away war zones. Then correspondent John Larson tells the poignant story of a man who seeks out the sites of light plane crashes. He introduces us to Pat Macha, who often leads survivors of the victims to the sites, offering them a sense of closure they've long been denied. Finally, media critic James Rainey takes modern journalism to task for failing to show the true horrors of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
