Betsy Wurzel’s guest is Lauren Kay Johnson an Air Force Veteran, Author, and Writer of THE FINE ART OF CAMOUFLAGE, and Lauren discusses the title of her book, how people do camouflage themselves, why Lauren went into the military, and how being in the Airforce in Afghanistan had affected her life in so many ways.
Lauren Kay Johnson was a Public Affairs Officer in a Provincial Reconstruction Team and discussed what she did in Afghanistan. Lauren also discussed how her mom being deployed when she was seven years old had an effect on her. Lauren went on to discuss Mental Health Issues concerning what “Moral Injury” is, she eventually went for counseling, and the stigma surrounding Mental Health, especially for Military Veterans!

In Betsy’s opinion, Lauren is brave to share her story with such raw honesty and for serving in Afghanistan.
