stands out as taking a life or supporting a system which may be involved in taking human lives can be very challenging to one's beliefs. Putting mission before family can also cause one to question their values.

What a great question.Trauma can have both positive and negative effects on spirituality. Because safety, self worth,and meaning can be disrupted by trauma, survivors sometimes question their beliefs.On the other hand, faith can help survivor extract meaning out of their experiences. I have had many discussions with veterans about what their faith means in the context of their service. Blessings.
