The Wilderness After War
In a video produced for the Dart Society, 2005 Ochberg fellow Lori Grinker profiled three former U.S. service members who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. "The Wilderness After War" tells the stories of Hart Viges, Mark Wilkerson and Jessica Goodell, all of whom voluntarily enlisted in the military, and none of whom fully recognized their PTSD until they were already back home.
"Like other veterans of wars around the world," writes Grinker. "They are learning to navigate through the wilderness."
