Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a new term for an old problem. The term was coined around 1980 with veterans returning from Vietnam and is evidence of the emotional impact of incidents of combat in human beings. It is very common with our veterans returning from Iraq and is difficult to detect because there are no external signs like being shot or wounded from a mine, but it is nonetheless very disabling.
