David Wood is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and the author of a fantastic new book, What Have We Done: The Moral Injury of Our Longest Wars. He has covered conflicts all over the globe and has seen warfare in many forms. We have a wonderful conversation that includes:
• Understanding moral injury and how it affects Veterans
• How PTSD is often misused as a blanket term for all combat related stress
• Reconciling a pacifist upbringing with the realities of war and soldiering
• Ways that we can better support one another, and our communities
Very few people have more experience with the true nature of armed conflict and those that are affected by it. Please enjoy this episode!
