"Long Road Home" debuts tonight at 11

I'm really excited to finally kick off tonight's series. I've received some great e-mails from local military families that are dealing with different levels of coping with the readjustment.

I was thrilled to appear on Good Company this morning to talk about the series. My segment was slated for eight minutes, which is an eternity in TV News .. but relatively normal on the Entertainment side of the house.

Tonight's first segment is on Matt Wojtecki, a Marine from Copley who served with Weapons Company of the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines. He saw a lot of action and was injured during his tour, but he stuck it out til the end to come home with his brothers.

He self-published his journals into a book that's certainly worth your time if you're interested in a first-person account of what it's like in the heat of battle.

See ya at 11 .. Eric
