Over two decades of fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, much research has explored the psychological toll suffered by the men and women who serve. A phenomenon that is perhaps less well understood is survivor’s guilt. Adam Linehan was an Army medic in both wars and is now a journalist who recently wrote about the agony of seeing others die. He talks to Nick Schifrin about his story and recovery.
