Sebastian Junger is a best-selling author and oscar-nominated film maker.  He's been a war correspondent in places like Bosnia and Afghanistan and is very familiar with both combat and soldiers.  His latest book, Tribe, contrasts modern society with the more communal social environments of our past.  In doing so, Junger illuminates how many of the challenges that Veterans face, including PTSD, may have more to do with life at home than they do with combat.

In this very candid interview, we cover some provocative topics like:

  • Why disability claims for PTSD are so high in the US
  • The importance of Veterans telling their stories
  • How affluence may be leading to emotional strain
  • Why we should stop defending harmful narratives
  • The benefits of mandatory national service

Sebastian's work, and our discussion, highlight the need for organizations like Team RWB.  The human need for connection, belonging, and purpose are deeply coded into our DNA.  Unfortunately, many in today's society feel more isolated than ever.  By coming together, in our communities, through positive activities, we're building a very important tribe that just may remind America how great it feels to work together.
