Off to War – and back again

A new series on the Discovery Times Channel takes viewers along for the experience with a group of citizen soldiers from the Arkansas National Guard in Iraq. Off to War represents the first time in television history that a single unit of soldiers has been followed from the beginning to the end of their deployment at war. As the series spotlights these ordinary men discovering the harsh realities of their dangerous duty, it also reveals the lives of the families and friends they left behind. The upcoming episode on Saturday, Nov. 19 (10 p.m. Eastern), tugs at the heartstrings as the troops receive a heartwarming homecoming reception and prepare to re-enter civilian life.
