ReEntry looks at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and afghanistan. Based on interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family, ReEntry tells the stories you haven't heard. ReEntry is not about politics. It is not about the WHY of this war. It's about stepping off that plane and coming home, re-entering ones life, family, and country-again.
