Roadside Uncertainty

In this episode, US Army Veteran Jason Comstock tells his story about the unexpected impact of serving in the War on Terror during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Not until years after returning home, did he and his family feel the full weight of those experiences on Jason’s heart and mind.  While driving home from work one afternoon in Pocatello, Idaho, the father of five saw what he believed might be a roadside bomb or improvised explosive device (IED). Even though he knew the possibility of a roadside bomb in his hometown was unlikely, it still caused him to grapple with fear, anxiety and the battle between what he felt and what was logical. The moment was seminal for Jason, as he realized he hadn’t left everything behind in Iraq, and maybe he never would.
