NDE Radio: Diane Corcoran

Diane Corcoran didnt know what a Vietnam War soldier was trying to tell her in 1969 about his near death experience on the battlefield. The term was unknown then, but Corcoran could see that what he had gone through was life changing. Since that day more than 40 years ago, Corcoran has made it her mission to learn more about those who report near death experiences, especially war veterans.

Diane Corcoran
Diane became interested in near-death phenomena in 1969, as an army field nurse in Vietnam, when injured soldiers first started telling her about them. This was before Dr. Raymond Moody wrote his classic book, Life After Life. Corcoran commanded a hospital unit for a short time in the 1970s, one of the few female officers to do so prior to the 1990s. Promoted to the rank of captain in 1976, Corcoran was the chief nurse at the 86th Combat Support Hospital (CSH) at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and was later appointed commander of the 86th CSH ahead of the traditional Medical Service Corps (MSC) officer. She left to pursue her doctorate at the University of Texas at Austin and to continue her interest in near-death phenomena—particularly as experienced by soldiers and by children. Corcoran is a contributor to When Ego Dies: A Compilation of Near-Death and Mystical Conversion Experiences and the lead investigator in the Combat Veteran NDE Project. She consults and speaks widely on near-death experiences, appropriate hospital and hospice care support, and a variety of related topics.
