America By The Numbers: Island of Warriors

Pacific Islanders serve in the U.S. military in disproportionally high numbers, and have suffered the highest casualty rates in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. "America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa" visits Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, to speak to some of the island's veterans. The men and women here are American citizens and serve in our country's military at a rate three times higher than the rest of the country. We explore why Guam's returning veterans say they can't get the health care they need.

"America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa" is an innovative documentary series, revealing how dramatic changes in the country's demographics are playing out in mainstream USA.
