8:12 am
well. >> hillary clinton is fighting a tw two-front war against trump but also bernie sanders. >> he is benefiting from that, the fact that bernie is still staying at it. but i do think donald trump will give hillary clinton a very close race and trump could beat hillary. the wrapping of hillary clinton is that he's a liar. the wrapping against donald trump is he's a sexist pig. he was change that if he wanted to. is he going to be able to do that? i don't know. >> he is winning independents right now, has the republican party lined up behind him after they fought him foro long. soledad "the war comes home" follows two iraq war veterans seeking help for post traumatic distress. take a look. >> it's like being in a burny building. the only way to get out is jump out the window. you don't want to die, but you

8:14 am
addicts and basically do drugs or drink themselves to death. that number, i don't think, is that accurate. >> what are the solutions that seem to be working in small places if they're not working at the va? >> in this particular program, save a warrior, some things are done across the board in other places and the va as well. you saw video of a ropes course, of where they bring people to the feeling of they're going to die. they're up on these wires and have to rely on each other. they also kind of create a brotherhood in this case. it's all men. there's a woman's program as well. but they learn they have to be responsible for other people. a big challenge is we send people off to war with a very specific strategy. it's about breaking people down and building this brotherhood. when you come back, there's not that, right? it's just like, and you're back. and you kind of need a system, i think, that helps reunite people back to what might be a civilian life. >> good for you for shining a
