Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder have become widely researched topics within the field of military psychology; however, within the past few years, new research on the topic of moral injury has emerged. The studies conducted on moral injury are growing in number, though research continues to lack on the experience of moral injury within the female Veteran population. The goal of this research is to capture the lived meaning, or lived experiences, of moral injury in female Veterans. Four participants who identified as female Veterans, and who experienced one or more deployments throughout the duration of their military service, were asked about their experiences of moral injury during their time serving in the United States military. This study uses an existential-phenomenological method to understand the participant’s experiences of moral injury. This study will conclude with implications for application to clinical care, and recommendations for future research.
