  2. Thanks so much for this article Larry. It is truly disturbing not only in terms of numbers but the different set of problems women vets have to deal with. To have MST on top of PTSD is a bit much, especially given the higher frequency of women vets. being single. It absolutely needs our attention. I wonder if there is a support network of any kind specifically for women yet? My current WIP novel touches on Vietnam and the effects on returning military personnel. It is an issue I’m already interested in. Sorry for the tardiness of my comment:-)

    1. Hi AK — I try to keep from painting all people in military service with the same brush. Trauma among female vets is a serious problem that deserves all the attention it can get. The perps are the rotten apples in this barrel.
