Today, Memorial Day, 2023, we listen for an hour to our guest Harvey Daiho Hilbert. He revisits and recounts his personal experience from 1966 forward, as a wounded, decorated Viet Nam combat veteran.
His story takes us from his enlistment, through his combat experience, including being shot in the head at 19 years old and his discharge from the Army. He speaks of his journey of recovery, earning a PhD in Social Work, his 30 years working with trauma survivors of all kinds, his path to Buddhism, and how it all shaped his future and present. An intimate, informed, insightful, thought-provoking and heart wrenching conversation.
Much gratitude to Harvey Daiho Hilbert for sharing his experience.
