Military vets are exposed to trauma. No secret there. However, the rates of American vets suffering PTSD is skyrocketing because of repeated 1-yr. tours in war zones. Effective July 12, 2010, the VA has a new regulation (subject to termination after the Obama administration leaves office). Described as “relaxed rules,” the vet’s symptoms (irritability, flashbacks, deep depression, and other emotional or behavior problems) will be used by the military clinicians to diagnosis PTSD. The change drops the requirement that events that caused the symptoms be documented.
