When Youth Radio reporters in Oakland, CA, spoke with their friends returning home from Iraq, they realized that the public wasn't hearing the perspectives of these young soldiers.

So they produced a series, Reflections on Return. In this piece, Charles Handy shares his feelings about returning to civilian life. Back home, without the gun and Kevlar vest he left behind in Iraq, he feels unsafe.
