Sgt. Jeremy Feldbusch, an Army Ranger, was blinded in Iraq when shrapnel from an exploded shell severly damaged his optic nerve.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – More than 21,000 American soldiers have been wounded in Iraq, and a new documentary asks what happens when those soldiers come home. Director Richard Hankin and Producer Meredith Lavitt Williams join Doug to talk about the Feldbusch family, whose son Jeremy deployed to Iraq at the age of 21. Some four months later, a piece of shrapnel lodged in his brain leaving him permanently blind. Home Front chronicles Jeremy's physical and emotional recovery, and the very real, personal cost of war.
