COMING BACK WITH WES MOORE, a new three-episode series executive produced by best-selling author and US army veteran Wes Moore, tells the story of his search for answers to some of the most difficult questions facing veterans returning from war. Moore's journey, spurred by the suicide of one of his oldest friends and a fellow officer, takes him into the personal lives of different soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate into society, establish new identities and – for many—find a new mission. Each episode focuses on a different stage of coming home: "Coming Back" (May 13), "Fitting In" (May 20), and "Moving Forward" (May 27).
