Coming Home: Dialogues on the Moral, Psychological, and Spiritual Impacts of War

Three discussion programs on the moral, psychological, and spiritual impact of military service, to be held at three locations in the Washington, DC area.

The objective of the Coming Home project is to support study and discussion with U.S. military veterans and others using humanities sources in philosophy, history, literature, and poetry to explore the moral, psychological, and spiritual impacts of war. In addition, the Coming Home project will: (1) serve as a resource not only for the program’s participants, but also for military veterans and others who wish to learn about and explore the program’s themes; and (2) help raise awareness among non-military members of the public about how the psychological, spiritual, and moral effects of war impacts military veterans, military families, and society more broadly.
