Get the scoop on some of the books and films that were a great help to me during my background research for Moving a Nation to Care. You'll find a list of my top 30 resources, and a brief reflection on each.
From Afghanistan, Iraq and Combat PTSD:
No matter the label given in past eras -- nostalgia or soldier's heart, shell shock or battle fatigue, post-Vietnam syndrome or today's PTSD -- we have forever felt the sting of war's affect on soldier and society. Our newest generation of veterans and our nation is no different, attempting to find meaning in the most violent of experiences and expressions known to man.
These are the books and films that I found to be most helpful in my quest for deeper understanding and direction. While I've placed mine in the #1 slot on this list, Moving a Nation to Care's pole position perch actually reflects the fact that it humbly stands on the shoulders of the deep and broad knowledge of those below it.
