3 hypotheses about symptoms of war-related posttraumatic stress disorder & general psychiatric disorder were tested among a sample 5,138 war zone veterans. All 3 hypotheses were supported significantly. With respect to suicidality, the Vietnam cohort accounted for 5 of 9 significant measures when age, education & medical condition were controlled for. A surprising finding was that Korean veterans had greater levels of distress & suicidality, perhaps reflecting the unpopularity of the Korean war.
