Approximately 30% of returning Vietnam Veterans experienced more severe PTSD symptoms that reflected in their difficulty re-connecting with the American society demands. Triggered reactions may have provoked problems with marriages, intimacy, job consistency, drug, and alcohol use, etc.

Approximately 10% of the returning Vietnam Veterans experienced symptoms so severe as to make their lives a continuously overwhelming survival process.
