Because of war’s destructive nature, it comes as no surprise that something so destructive can have serious consequences. One of those many consequences is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the soldiers who fight these wars. PTSD has been around for as long as war has, but it wasn’t until the First World War (WW1) that PTSD became a serious war-time injury. After WW1, PTSD became more widely known, and is now one of the most common injuries for soldiers to be treated for. Understanding the history of PTSD is important, but almost equally important is recognizing the need for awareness and treatment of PTSD in the brave men and women who fight these wars today since PTSD not only impacts them but their families as well.
