520    Although veterans make up only 7 percent of the U.S. 
       population, they account for an alarming 20 percent of all
       suicides. And though treatment of post-traumatic stress 
       disorder has undoubtedly alleviated suffering and allowed 
       many service members returning from combat to transition 
       to civilian life, the suicide rate for veterans under 
       thirty has been increasing. Research by Veterans 
       Administration health professionals and veterans' own 
       experiences now suggest an ancient but unaddressed wound 
       of war may be a factor: moral injury. This deep-seated 
       sense of transgression includes feelings of shame, grief, 
       meaninglessness, and remorse from having violated core 
       moral beliefs. Rita Nakashima Brock and Gabriella Lettini,
       who both grew up in families deeply affected by war, have 
       been working closely with vets on what moral injury looks 
       like, how vets cope with it, and what can be done to heal 
       the damage inflicted on soldiers' consciences. In Soul 
       Repair, the authors tell the stories of four veterans of 
       wars from Vietnam to our current conflicts in Iraq and 
       Afghanistan--Camillo "Mac" Bica, Herman Keizer Jr., Pamela
       Lightsey, and Camilo Mejía--who reveal their experiences 
       of moral injury from war and how they have learned to live
       with it. Brock and Lettini also explore its effect on 
       families and communities, and the community processes that
       have gradually helped soldiers with their moral injuries. 
       Soul Repair will help veterans, their families, members of
       their communities, and clergy understand the impact of war
       on the consciences of healthy people, support the recovery
       of moral conscience in society, and restore veterans to 
       civilian life. When a society sends people off to war, it 
       must accept responsibility for returning them home to
