which best describes the situation vietnam veterans faced after returning...
The correct answer is : Many suffered from physical and mental injuries, while others felt hostility from civilians around them.
Many Vietnam veterans suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD ). PTSD was officially recognized as mental condition in 1980, Vietnam veterans were the first soldiers to have this term applied to. Today, 50 years after the end of the Vietnam war, many veterans still suffer from PTSD every day.
This disorder, which is in fact a mental injury, is defined as having flashbacks ( to fighting scenes during combat in the war ), upsetting memories and anxiety, all this as a result of a traumatic event.
Apart from PTSD, many suffer from physical conditions, most of which are : musculoskeletar injuries and pain, chemical exposure, traumatic brain injury, noise and vibration exposure and many more.
Because the Vietnam War was highly controversial and fought on moral grounds, many veterans experienced hostility on their return from the war. Their involvement in the war was questioned, they were accused of senseless murdering of innocent Vietnamese peasants and destroying the environment there.
