I’m pictured here with Vietnam Veterans, the folks who are teaching more recent veterans how to come home from a war. This gift was given in loving memory of Vietnam veteran and Army chaplain Bob Tarbet. Beverly Tarbet (on the other end of the Oversized Check) believes in the mission of the EVF because of her experiences with Bob coming home from Vietnam “a different person.” They found healing and hope through the Church, counselors, and friends, after their significant trials. We hope to bring healing to veterans and their families through this gift.” EVF Founder, The Rev. Dr. David W. Peters

I Am

I am returning to a civilized world

I no longer recognize.

Eight years go

to the night we toasted our brothers

beneath a mortar streaked sky –

too tired to run for shelter, too comforted

in the fire of a makeshift grill, too much

feeling as if the others should be here.

I am in a safe community of strangers

each one known by the chirp

of a car alarm, the slam of a door.

In the absence of danger we’re creating

our own fear.

I am trying

to wring stories out of a dry brain,

some by folks not here to tell them.

I am over the desire to look

for what’s falling from the sky,

but I am wondering if I shouldn’t be.

Healing a Wounded Sense of Morality

Its true

Many veterans are suffering from a condition similar to, but distinct from, PTSD: moral injury, in which the ethical transgressions of war can leave service members traumatized.
