One Response to Combat Vets, Trauma and PTSD – Part 3

  1. Elizabeth Holloway says:

    I watch many programs on television about World War II, with its many different battles fought around the globe. In every one of these programs, veterans of these battles are interviewed. They still break down when they’re interviewed, and they never forget their horrifying experiences as soldiers fighting on the battlefield. They talk about their comrades dying all around them. Some veterans of the European theatre have witnessed Nazi atrocities ( committed by the SS), and some spent time in captivity in Nazi prisoners-of-war camps. As they grow older and their health deteriorates, the veterans of World War II have more frequent nightmares and flashbacks. The war really never leaves them.
