I usually reserve my posts on this blog to specifically Jewish military subjects and write on general military subject for my Mrs. Lieutenant blog. Yet the post I just wrote for my Mrs. Lieutenant blog deals with a subject that affects Jewish and non-Jewish military personnel and their families — Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
And for this reason I’d like to ask you to go over to my Mrs. Lieutenant blog and read the post there. You’ll learn how Joseph Conrad in HEART OF DARKNESS published in 1899 described the changes in the brains of people subjected to trauma and how this connects to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal.
