Troops Channel the Samurai to Prepare for Battle
East Coast troops have been using some alternative training systems to prepare for the mental aftermath of war. The veteran-run Warrior Mind Training program has been introducing its services to army and naval bases across North Carolina. Using Samurai meditation techniques, the program attempts to reduce ‘mental chatter’ and bring clarity and focus to stress-filled war environments. Warrior Mind Training also assists troops during battle, and on their return to help deal with Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Combat Stress.
