PTSD has been associated with long-term exposure to warfare or other threats to a person’s life , to which Billy have had encounters with throughout the duration of the war. Evidence of Billy's PTSD include the fact that he ascribed the faces of the guards in Dresden, in reaction to the bombing, as “a silent film of a barbershop quartet” (pg. 178), likely due to the indescribable nature of the violence.
