Veterans and the Arts In Healing, A Continuing Story:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
Since the end of World War II, the arts have gradually acquired a greater acceptance in the military for their potential in helping veterans to heal from the physical and psychological wounds of war. Arts therapy is now included in the basic treatment framework for the Veterans Administration. Today’s post tells the inspiring story of one World War II vet who is still using his art to help other veterans.
“Reginald Adams, who served in World War II in the U.S. Navy, suffered what today would be called post-traumatic stress disorder. As an artist, he used art to help today’s veterans, others.”
