A number of Maryland National Guardsmen will be returning this spring. Members of the National Guard face the same combat in Iraq as members of the other branches of the armed services, but have fewer resources available to them when they return home. With little or no federal government funding, states have been left to create their own reintegration programs. Minnesota National Guard’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon reintegration program is serving as a model for other states.

This hour we’ll look at the issues facing members of the National Guard as they return home.
