PTSD Appears To Be More Common Than Previously Thought Among Women Veterans From The Vietnam Era

Reuters (10/7, Seaman) reports that the prevalence of PTSD is far higher than originally thought in women veterans who served during the era of the Vietnam war, according to a study published online Oct. 7 in JAMA Psychiatry. Researchers arrived at that conclusion after examining data on 4,219 female service members who served in Vietnam, near Vietnam, and in the US from 1965 to 1973. Also covering the story are HealthDay (10/8, Dallas) and Medscape (10/8, Harrison).
