“War is hell!” These words are believed to have been said by General William T. Sherman in 1863 during our nation’s Civil War. With this metaphor, General Sherman captures the reality of war as a place of life-threatening terror, of carnage where life expectancy is unknown, of danger where warriors must be constantly hypervigilant, of all-pervasive and inescapable death. Combat veteransi (whom I shall refer to as warriors) live in such a hell for the duration of their tour of duty, and for those who suffer trauma, beyond it as well.
