Listen

(Duration: 16:10)

Eric (pictured on the far right) with friends in Kuwait in 2006 shortly before going to Iraq.

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War. Eric Swenson, who now lives in Paxton, Illinois with his family, joined the military straight out of high school in 2004. He didn't expect to be involved in combat, but was close to the action, doing intelligence work as part of an infantry batallion. He joined us in studio to discuss his experiences, including the transition back to life in America, and the tough emotional toll of the conflict.
