He opened the door for other soldiers to bring dogs home, and inFrom Baghdad to America, Kopelman once again leads the pack with his observations on the emotional repercussions of war.

Here, for the first time, Kopelman holds nothing back as he responds to the question, Why did you save a dog instead of a person?? The answer reveals much about his inner demonsand about the bigger picture of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He talks about what it?s like to return to the States and examines the shocking statistics to come out of Iraq: Depression, suicide, alcohol abuse, and broken relationships are at record highs for the men and women who serve there. Kopelman credits Lava with helping him to endure combat and the pain of war, as well as helping him deal with the surprising difficulties of returning to everyday life.
