The family of a woman murdered by a former Marine is taking the government to court. They say the killer - who was forced out of the military for mental health issues - shouldn't have been able to buy a gun.
The American Homefront Project collaborated with the PBS documentary series American Veteran to profile men and women who have served in the U.S. military.
