In veterans of the great wars they called it shell shock.
The Vietnam war was the first combat experience where people began to take post combat PTSD seriously.
Now I know this can be hit or miss, but the veteran's administration hospital where I live is actually quite good. They have veteran specific therapies that are quite effective and a team of *privately* trained psychologists to help returning veterans.
Of course I live right next to a huge military base AND a major medical center.
Please babblemail me and I can give you some more info.
