It was dubbed "Shock and Awe," but the magnitude of America's invasion of Iraq, 10 years ago Tuesday, fueled controversy and dissent. The U.S. and its allies were emboldened to attack, fearing Saddam's "weapons of mass destruction." Years later, revelations have been made that the WMD's never existed. Since then, more than a million men and served, and 4,500 have died. President Obama has pulled U.S. forces out, but the war still takes its toll on veterans and families. KING 5's Glenn Farley reports how one Bellevue family kept things together.
