Much has been written of the short-term experience of combat trauma. Almost nothing has been documented about how that trauma impacts individuals years after their first conflict experiences and into later life.

16 vietnam veterans share their experiences with combat and the trauma that they live with after they come home - even 40 years later. The writing isn't strong, but the stories are powerful.
