162141946A new book chronicles the lives of several military family members and veterans of the conflict in Iraq, including Dean Pamela Lightsey and her son Dweylon. The book is Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury after War by Rita Nakashima Brock and Gabriella Lettini. Pamela applauds them for doing “a fine job exploring the impact of moral injury on not only our individual lives but also so many families across America.” For Pamela and Dweylon, this was hard story-telling, but they wanted to share their stories to reveal the “often invisible trauma our military personnel are having to cope with daily.” Good Reading!
