Went to a conference today. It was presented by our military to help counselors be better in tuned to the lives of service men and women. The warriors were really valiant. I admired their wanting to share their lives so that others can learn. So many people, like myself, are insulated from the military, and are clueless about the sacrifices and hardships. I think that a cultural awareness, sensitivity training regarding their subgroup would be a great addition to school curriculum. I learned about the anxiety both pre and post deployment and about conflict of family mission with military mission.
