Veterans have a much higher incidence of Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) than the general population owing to the dangerous nature of their work. Veterans don’t often talk about NDEs, and their healthcare providers know little about them. This page is intended to serve as a resource for Veterans and their healthcare providers who want to learn about NDEs and their aftereffects. Videos on the Medical page may also be of interest.
A Soldier’s Near Death Experiences: Former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris ( author of Man of Steel, shiloharris.com) received devastating injuries in Iraq on Feb. 19, 2007, when a roadside bomb exploded. After his rescue, he spent 48 days in an induced coma during which he had several Near Death Experiences (NDEs). Like many Veterans Shilo had never really processed his NDEs, mostly because his counselors weren’t trained to recognize them. He became more fully aware that he was an NDE survivor when he began answering video interview questions by Roberta Moore of NDEvideo.com
Veterans’ Experience of After Death Communications Have you ever had a communication from someone who was deceased? If you are a combat Veteran, it’s likely that you have had this very common, very normal experience. David Hufford, Ph.D., University Professor Emeritus, Penn State College of Medicine, has completed research about Combat Veterans’ Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs). Here he talks about his findings about Veterans’ Experiences of After Death Communications (ADCs).
