  • When War's Images Follow Soldiers Home

    Jun 11, 2009

    The memories I have of Soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder start in 1976. The first Soldier I remember with PTSD, we called Sgt. Ski. He was my platoon sergeant and neither he nor I knew what PTSD was but the symptoms were very obvious with him. He would let no one walk behind him. He startled easily when an unexpected loud noise occurred. I remember when the jeep backfired in the motor pool and he "hit the dirt." Sgt. Ski could not stand crowds. He preferred to be alone and he had a table in the corner at the NCO club. He could be found in there from about 3 p.m. till closing most days. Sgt. Ski had been an infantryman in Vietnam, but he would never talk about it.
