Drew Pham and Molly Pearl

Army Captain Drew Pham was 24 years old when he completed a tour of duty in Afghanistan in October 2011.

Since returning, Drew has had a hard time making sense of what he saw at war and adjusting to life at home.

At StoryCorps, Drew (left) spoke with his wife, Molly Pearl (right), about that transition and some of his most difficult combat memories.

Drew was honorably discharged from the Army in 2013.
