What veterans need from the church

War is not a desirable thing; nonetheless, there are times when war is necessary. When the worst of fallen humanity violently rears its head, there are times when it has to be met with an exceedingly violent force. World renowned psychologist Edward Tick reminds his readers that troops often act with little choice and on the orders of others, yet when they return home, society refuses to take responsibility for the actions it demanded. Governments and societies are rarely in the business of accepting responsibility. The veteran community’s problem is not a battlefield problem; it’s a social problem.


Every generation has it's men and increasingly women who have seen the horrors of war. With high levels of suicide among veterans and increasingly fewer and fewer men want any part of organized church, how do you minister to the needs of the veterans in your community?
