The World

Brandon Friedman has been telling war stories for the past 10 years.

The veteran infantry officer served with the 101st Airborne Division during the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

He even wrote a combat memoir, "The War I Always Wanted"

Anchor, Marco Werman speaks with Friedman about this change and how the Iraq War permeated his life over the last decade.
