For One Soldier, Rap Is A Powerful Postwar Weapon

When Jeff Barillaro returned from fighting the war in Iraq, he felt lost. Now known as "Soldier Hard," he's rapping about how war has changed troops and their families. His music is developing a following among other vets and their families, who say his music speaks to them and makes them feel less alone.
