The Effects of War on Families
and Reception Afterwards
Beginning with special operations forces sent into Afghanistan to assist anti-Taliban forces, the United States has had its soldiers engaged in a decade of war. The effects of war on an individual can be significant. Physical wounds and amputations change even basic things like walking. Lurking beneath the surface, mental wounds weigh our soldiers down with feelings of guilt, negativity, and hopelessness. Both physical and mental wounds affect the families of these soldiers as well and this aspect of war wounds should not be forgotten.
Join us as to view the highly praised 20-minute documentary, The Horse Soldiers of 9/11, which examines some of these issues with the first soldiers to go into combat following 9/11. Following the film, our panel will discuss the effects of war on families and the efforts that are being undertaken to assist their healing.
