“Some 300,000 U.S. troops are suffering from major depression or post traumatic stress (PTSD) from serving in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and 320,000 received brain injuries,” according to a study from the RAND Corporation. The study put the percentage of PTSD and depression at 18.5 percent, but only “about half have sought treatment.”
