Remembrance and Healing for War Veterans

The idea of pilgrimage is common to many faith traditions and central to the human experience; we yearn for something more and to be on a journey with someone else, says Walter Reed Army Medical Center Chaplain Randy Haycock. Military service provides that for soldiers, he says, but when warriors return without their military brothers and sisters, they may be left with a sense of incompleteness and doubts about the value of their lives. Haycock discusses the power to heal contained in the monthly pilgrimages he leads to Washington National Cathedral for participants in Walter Reed’s Warrior Transition Brigade. Suitable for use as a sermon illustration or a study group discussion-starter, the 4½-minute video is available on the Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly website.
