The policy for receiving treatment and compensation for PTSD for soldiers in the military during the war ,was that if the soldier experienced symptoms 6 months after their return home it was considered a “transient situational disorder” meaning that it was a pre existing condition which was not eligible for treatment by the United States government. Many veterans survive tour after tour only to come home, back to civilian life, to die from not getting treated for PTSD.
