American Veterans

We’re talking today with Rocky Sickmann who works with “Folds of Honor” -- a nonprofit that provides scholarships to the children and spouses of U.S. military men and women disabled or killed in service to their country. He served in the United States Marine Corps for six years and was one of 65 Americans taken hostage in Iran on Nov. 4, 1979. Sickmann remained a hostage for 444 days before being released on January 21, 1981.

A majority of American veterans, both able-bodied and wounded, say they want to continue to serve after fighting overseas. TIME Magazine’s Joe Klein details the story behind two soldiers who show fellow veterans how to use their war skills to rebuild communities here and abroad in his new book, Charlie Mike.
