        Island of Warriors | America by the Numbers: Episode 2

        Learn about Pacific Islanders in the U.S. military and the medical service they get after returning home. In this episode, Maria Hinojosa visits Guam, a United States territory in the Pacific, to speak to some of the island's veterans. Pacific Islanders serve in disproportionally high numbers, at a rate three times higher than the rest of the country, and have suffered the highest casualty rates in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Explore why Guam's returning veterans say they can't get the healthcare they need.
