    Vietnam still haunts the American conscience. Not only did nearly 58,000 Americans die there, but--by some estimates--1.5 million veterans returned with war-induced Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This psychological syndrome, responsible for anxiety, depression, and a wide array of social pathologies, has never before been placed in historical context.

  • Vietnam Veterans Unbroken: Conversations on Trauma and Resiliency

    For 50 years, civilians have avoided hearing about the controversial experiences of Vietnam veterans, many of whom suffer through post-traumatic stress alone. Through interviews conducted with 17 soldiers, this book shares the stories of those who have been silenced. These men and women tell us about life before and after the war. They candidly share stories of 40-plus years lived on the "edge of the knife" and many wonder what their lives would be like if they had come home to praise and parades.

Yet Kays’ valor came during just another unheralded fire fight near the end of a long and seemingly fruitless war. He returned ho...

The diagnosis of PTSD, termed following and significantly influenced by this war, stirred controversy.
