Veterans' PTSD may recur down the line
Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan had a spike in post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms in the months immediately after their return, but also five years later, according to a Dutch study. The results suggest that screening for PTSD symptoms should continue for more than just a year or two after soldiers return home because new or recurrent PTSD cases could emerge, the authors say.
