Help reporters cover the modern veteran experience
About a third of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who visit VA medical centers say they've experienced some kind of mental health issue. As these conflicts wind down, are adequate services in place to support veterans to mentally move on from war?
Journalists here at American Public Media and at WBUR radio in Boston have reported on the phenomonon of "moral injury" for the last few months. If you're a veteran or have a loved one who is, help us better understand the veteran experience by clicking "Respond" below and answering a few of our questions.
Your insight will help inform our coverage of the modern veteran experience. But your information will remain completely confidential unless you explicitly give us permission below to share your story.
Thanks for your time.
