Soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division are ready for the unexpected as they prepare to clear a house in Ar Raqqah, Iraq, July, 6. All Soldiers in combat situations like this suffer stress, but most recover quickly. Those whose symptoms persist may have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The Army has launched a "chain-teaching" program to help Soldiers and their Families identify symptoms and seek treatment for those suffering from PTSD, as well as mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
