CNN Newsroom: Nick Colgin speaks about combat stress in Afghanistan

On Monday, March 19, IAVA Membership Coordinator Nick Colgin appeared on CNN Newsroom and spoke about the recent incident out of Kandahar and what it’s like to serve in Afghanistan. Colgin served in Operation Enduring Freedom as a medic with the 82D Airborne Division.

“Coming home is hard for any soldier,” he said, but the public should be careful not to jump to stereotypes and confuse the actions of SSG Bales with other veterans of Iraq or Afghanistan.
