We focus this week on something Washingtonians know well: Stress. We'll talk with veterans back from the battlefront and hear what scientists have to say about healing a mind that's preoccupied with memories of war. We'll find out about a major change to the services Virginia offers disabled residents -- and hear from parents who are really, really stressed out about those changes. And we'll spend a work shift with a man who traveled here from abroad to support a family thousands of miles away.
