The Coming Home project offers military veterans the opportunity to explore the moral, psychological, and spiritual impacts of war on the warrior as she or he returns home.

The project coordinates dialogues between veterans, using sources in philosophy, history, poetry, and literature to spur discussion. Trained facilitators lead each discussion, and source material ranges from antiquity to the present, with a focus on World War I and the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Third time's the charm. Coming Home receives a third year of support from NEH!

Watch project Co-Director, Dr. Ed Barrett, speak on the Coming Home project at New America.

We are delighted to once again receive support from the NEH for the Coming Home Project!

We are conducting our dialogue sessions and still  accepting applications to participate in the dialogues for 2017-2018

We had an excellent panel on moral injury at this year's International Society for Military Ethics 2017.
