Synopsis

WES MOORE, a U.S. Army combat veteran, has created and is the host of Coming Back with Wes Moore, which will air on PBS starting in May. In three moving episodes, Moore follows the lives of soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate into society and establish new identities after completing their tours of duty.
 
Wes Moore is the author of Discovering Wes Moore, an autobiography for young readers based on his bestselling adult memoir The Other Wes Moore. Exploring factors that contribute to success—and failure—he compares and contrasts his life story with that of a man who shares his name, is almost the same age, and, like the author, grew up fatherless in Baltimore but who is serving a life sentence for murder. Upon learning about this other Wes Moore, the author was compelled to write to him and was surprised to receive a reply. That reply gave birth to a friendship as letters turned into visits and the two men got to know one another. This compelling story about the challenges of growing up and accepting responsibility for our choices is sure to inspire. Includes an 8-page photo insert.
