This week I chatted with Boone Cutler, a veteran, radio host, author, and creator of the Spartan Pledge, a pledge for Warfighters designed to combat the epidemic of veteran suicide. In this conversation we discussed suicide prevention among vets, medical care for veterans and the "Warfighter mentality." He also explained some new ways of thinking about PTSD among those in the Warfighter community. It was an illuminating conversation for me, one that informed and reframed how I think about the Warfighter community.
Check out Boone's book Voodoo in Sadr City.
