This week, Pittsburgh City Paper joins other local media, old and new, by taking part in "Coming Home PA," a joint effort to document the experiences of Western Pennsylvania veterans returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our stories, on veterans becoming more politically engaged, and how the military is contending with sex assaults on the increasing number of female soldiers in the service, join reports filed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Essential Public Radio, The New Pittsburgh Courier, and other outlets. The effort was coordinated by PublicSource, a nonprofit journalism venture in the mode of ProPublica.
A full index of Coming Home PA stories is below:
I love Mel Packer!
