War "Exists in an Outside Moral Universe": An Iraq Veteran Explains Moral Injury

At The Meadows, we are honored to provide behavioral health and substance abuse inpatient services, with an emphasis on trauma, PTSD, and addictive disease disorders, to active duty military members, retirees and dependents of the TRICARE West Region.

In the interview below, US Army infantryman Alex Horton depicts what readjusting to life after the war really means. The struggle to justify his actions in war against his moral compass leaves Horton with a feeling of self-doubt and self-criticism that never goes away. This struggle is known as “moral injury”.
