    Many veterans are suffering from a condition similar to, but distinct from, PTSD: moral injury, in which the ethical transgressions of war can leave service members traumatized.

  5. Quotes

    1. These morally ambiguous situations continue to bother you, weeks, months, or years after they happened.
    2. Most young adults think in black-and-white in terms of moral concepts, because they are still developmental adolescents and not always able to think in nuanced terms.
    3. Most other scales tap into life-threat traumas, where the predominant emotion is going to be fear.
    4. Current interventions for PTSD do well when trauma is fear- and victim-based, but not all moral injury fits under this umbrella.
    5. A part of feeling betrayed or distrusted or guilty by the practices of war is feeling alienated. It's feeling like you can't share your experiences because people will judge you or won't understand.
    6. It's incredible to have these men and women in the same room, approaching moral injury from different angles.
