The military devotes a lot of money and resources to training for combat and to treating post-combat stress.  Now there's research underway at Norwich University in Northfield that uses a tool more associated with peace than warfare to prepare military men and women. 

The study is looking at whether Transcendental Meditation will not only make better soldiers, but inoculate them from the psychological trauma of combat.  

VPR's Steve Zind has this story on a group of cadets that some are calling the Oom Platoon.
