Ethical Dilemmas in the Military – Veteran Round Table

In this 2ndLook News round table, hosted by 2ndLook’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Stacia Wilson, US veterans candidly discuss ethical dilemmas they experienced during their years of military service.

We cover everything from tough decisions they faced when doing the right thing and following the rules conflicted, to the classification of military personnel’s bodies as government property, their thoughts on whistleblowing, PTSD and the lengths soldiers will go to not to lose their right to bear arms, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), the influence of critical theory on combat readiness, the ethics of taking a life, and more.

With a combined total of 59 years of military service between them, this was an eye-opening conversation on the ethical dilemmas faced by real humans who have experienced the inner workings of the largest military power in the world.

Founder, Editor-in-Chief

Stacia Wilson is a writer and entrepreneur. She grew up traveling between the US and Japan as the child of Christian missionaries, and has been to over 20 countries as a digital nomad. To empower others to travel, she wrote the ebook How to Travel Without Time or Money.

Stacia’s background as a partner dance instructor and world traveler has given her a unique perspective on human connection, language, and culture. She has a wide-ranging skillset that allowed her to freelance remotely before becoming an entrepreneur. She has managed teams while working as editor-in-chief of multiple commercial blogs, such as Wandering Westie, a lifestyle brand, and SwayD, a dance shoe brand.

She has a BS in Anthropology from the University of La Verne (magna cum laude) and is a member of the Lambda Alpha National Anthropology Honor Society. As part of receiving her degree, she conducted multiple hands-on ethnographic studies. These included on-the-ground networking, interviews, and documentation of cultural events. Her senior thesis was an ethnography which involved conducting and analyzing research in Europe, Asia, and across the United States.

  Stacia has completed personal development and leadership programs with Landmark Worldwide, Powerteam International, and Mindvalley. Her last entrepreneurial endeavor before Covid was an online dance training program (in Japanese) for women in Japan. Most recently, she was a volunteer for Unity2020, a movement designed to encourage solutions-oriented perspectives and uncover options beyond the two-party political system that dominates American media and politics.

  Stacia founded 2ndLook News from a desire to reimagine news—from a system of misaligned incentives producing skewed information which results in division and chaos, to one that facilitates sound decision-making and common understanding.
