James C. Munch working in conjunction with the Maine Infantry Foundation, the Maine Humanities Center at the University of Maine, the Acadia Hospital, the Maine Military & Community Network, and others, organized and coordinated the “Odysseus in Maine” project, which involved four days of events with Dr. Jonathan Shay addressing the effects of combat trauma on veterans, seeking to foster both better understanding of these phenomena as well as a better community based treatment of both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and related injuries.
