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 Healthcare page may also be of interest.


Veteran’s NDE: Retired Chief Petty Officer Tony Woody tells about his near fatal crash landing, his NDE at the time, and the continuing unfolding of his NDE a few days later when he encountered the Being of Light. This experience led him to explore world religions and modern science seeking answers to the nature of consciousness.

A Soldier’s Near Death Experiences: Former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris (author of Man of Steel, 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.
