This paper deals primarily with post-traumatic stress disorder as it pertains to the military and discusses some of the problems that many of these individuals face when they return from combat or other military service. The first chapter examines the statement of the problem and provides detail about why a study of this nature is necessary. It also discusses the hypotheses that were created by the researcher and ensures that there is a thorough understanding of what will be studied. In chapter two, the literature on the subject is reviewed. Since there is not enough literature to provide a comprehensive account of post traumatic stress disorder when it comes to the military, other areas of post traumatic stress disorder and other causes of it are also examined. The third chapter deals with the methodology of the issue and how the study itself was conducted. What kind of data was collected, as well as where it came from and how it will be analyzed are all important issues discussed in chapter three, which provides a strong lead-in for chapter four, where the data that was collected is actually analyzed. This analysis is at the heart of the study, and the hypotheses that were created in chapter one are dealt with again in light of the information collected. In the last chapter, the information is summarized and conclusions are drawn about the issue. The recommendations for future research into the area of post traumatic stress disorder and the military are also provided.

From the Paper:

"The issue of post-traumatic stress disorder is one that has been misunderstood for many years. There are individuals that study it and discuss how significant it is, and there are others that see it as some kind of made-up problem that is really not important enough to focus on. Both of these are valid points of view but, in recent years, it has generally been accepted that post-traumatic stress disorder does exist, and that the study of it is important. Unlike standard medical problems, such as diseases that affect the body, post-traumatic stress disorder is not something that can be 'cured,' as it is understood in the traditional sense."
