Proximity: Caring for Those Wounded by War
Physical wounds of war are often obvious. Invisible wounds go unseen, leaving veterans to experience their injuries in isolation. Among those suffering alone are veterans who return from service with moral injuries—emotional injuries that result from trauma, engaging in activities, witnessing acts, or participating in immediate decision-making that violates their values or ethics.
On Wednesday, November 10, pastoral care providers, chaplains, veterans, service members, and family members of veterans and service members, and others who are interested in learning how they can support those who live with moral injuries will gather from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. MT at Mission Hills Church, 620 Southpark Dr., Littleton, Colo. and via livestream for Proximity: Caring for Those Wounded by War. Attendees will hear from veterans who have been impacted by moral injury and learn how they can better understand moral injury and how they can play a role in the healing process.
Date: Wednesday, November 10
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM (MST)
Location: Mission Hills Church, 620 Southpark Dr., Littleton, Colorado and via livestream
