To the Battlefield and Back Again: Conversations on War, Trauma, and Life After Service

A preparatory program and three discussion groups for 60 veteran and active-duty service members from Colorado Springs and surrounding areas.

To the Battlefield and Back Again: Conversations on War, Trauma, and Life After Service, seeks to facilitate an extended, community-based exploration of three themes: “Discourses on Going to War,” “The Modern Battlefield: Warfighters and Trauma,” and “Coming Home/Home Front.” Within each theme, we will consider the Trojan War, World War II, and Afghanistan/Iraq, enabling participants to situate and compare diverse military experiences across time and cultures. Leaders and participants in each thematically-based discussion group will come from the Colorado Springs civilian and veteran communities, and from the many active-duty service members and military-associated civilians who are housed in and around the military installations in the Colorado Springs/Pikes Peak region.
