USA: One in five soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq suffer from PTSD

Statement at Winter Soldier Hearing Europe (Rose Kazma)

(14.03.2009) Active duty soldiers are unlikely to be diagnosed with PTSD. In fact they are more likely to be punished for their symptoms than they are to receive the treatment they need. Self-cutting , anger outbursts, and alcohol abuse, among others are symptoms conveniently labeled misconduct by the military resulting in disciplinary action. In other cases soldiers are given diagnoses such as personality disorder indicating that the symptoms come from a pre-existing condition and are not attributable to combat experience. Those who do receive a diagnosis of PTSD are heavily medicated and returned to active duty.
