Many Veterans are now banding into “Warrior Societies” but do not know what direction to go. In my work, I see on a daily basis many new patients (veterans) coming in for help: some with traumatic brain injury (TBI), substance abuse treatment (mainly alcohol), post traumatic disorders, and the all too often “suicidal attempt” where a new generation of warriors kick off the repressed memories of Vietnam era warriors remembering what was suppressed for so many years, their minds desperately making an often failed attempt to resolve an un-grieved, ghost ridden past. The Smell of Rain on Dust beautifully addresses the possibility of a “Society of Warriors” so changed by having killed that they become a society of healers to heal those wounded in war, both old and new.
