Sensei Trevor Maloney, a Zen priest in Austin, TX, recently posted an interview he conducted with Buddhist soldier and two-time Bronze Star Medal recipient, 1st Lt. Stephen J. Hunnewell. I corresponded via email with 1stLT Hunnewell while in Afghanistan, but we never met as we were stationed in separate areas of the country. Sensei Maloney kindly sent me the link to the interview, which is on his blog, The Big Old Oak Tree. Please read it. I am grateful to him for doing this interview, which will hopefully present another perspective on Buddhists serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Thank you Sensei!
