In this episode, Tim and Brock talk with Graham Barnhart.
Graham spent 11 years in the Army and National Guard as a Special Forces Medic (18D). Having been deployed 3 times, Graham has leaned on many of his experiences as inspiration for his writing. We talk through why it's difficult to talk to non service members about your experiences, how the military forces you to compare yourself to others and how detrimental that is, and how mindfulness, reading, and writing can help you process past events.
Graham has an undergraduate degree in English and is working on a doctorate in creative writing. His poetry book, 'The War Makes Everyone Lonely', can be purchased at https://press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/W/bo43988383.html
