  • EXCHANGE HIDDEN WOUNDS
    Former Army Reserve Sgt. Xavier Watt visits his grandfather's grave, who served in the U.S. Air Force, on Memorial Day at the Houston National Cemetery on May 26, 2014, in Houston. Like hundreds of thousands of soldiers back from the war in Iraq, Watt has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and is finding that complicates things in the workplace. He takes medication to control his dark moods, he's had extensive counseling to help him cope with conflict and he leans on his supportive family as he wrestles with scarring memories earned a decade ago far away. He says he is OK to return to work and that he's got medical reports to prove it. So far, SunEdison won't let him back. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates 400,000 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have some form of PTSD.

    Family and friends look on following funeral services for Darrien Hunt Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014, in Saratoga Springs, Utah. Friends and family of the young black man fatally shot by Utah police remembered him Thursday as a shy, gentle and wise man who loved art and music and was trying to find his way through a transition into adulthood. Hunt was killed on Sept. 10 in a strip mall in the upscale city south of Salt Lake City. The fatal shooting didn't get much attention until Hunt's mother came out days later and said she believed her son was shot because he was black. Authorities, however, say race played no role in the shooting. They say officers were reacting to Hunt lunging at them with a sword that had a 2.5-foot steel blade.

The young menís mother said her sons died in a June 30 confrontation between Mexican army soldiers and a suspected drug gang at a warehouse, and believes they were killed after they surrendered and were disarmed. The Mexican government has maintained that 22 people killed on the early morning of June 30 died in a fierce shootout with security forces, a version that came into question because government troops suffered only one wounded and physical evidence at the scene pointed toward more selective killings.

According to her, one man died in the initial shootout, and the rest of the gunmen surrendered on the promise they would not be hurt. She recalled that her daughter was face down in the ground with a bullet in her leg, and was rolled over while she was still alive and shot more than half a dozen times in the chest. The mother said she arrived to the warehouse the day before the shooting in an attempt to take her daughter home, but gang members wouldn't let her.

    In this Sept. 16, 2014, photo, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, left, and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee in Washington. The White House and the Pentagon are grappling with how to explain what American military forces are doing and could do in Iraq as they battle the Islamic State militants. Speaking at U.S. Central Command on Wednesday, President Barack Obama reiterated his pledge to keep American troops out of combat missions. But hours later, Vice President Joe Biden appeared to be less certain about ground troops. "We'll determine that based on how the effort goes," Biden told reporters in Iowa. Biden's remarks echoed comments a day earlier from Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the Joint Chiefs chairman, who said he may, if necessary, recommend to the president that U.S. ground forces accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against Islamic State targets, particularly in certain complex missions or if there were threats to the U.S.
