From the Department of Lousy Statistics

Cemetery find some guys who claim that more Vietnam Vets have killed themselves than were KIA in-country.  I call B.S.

If you want to understand PTSD, you should read this.  It's terrible, beyond words (PTSD, not the book).

But making up statistics doesn't help your cause.  It makes you look like you're trolling for donations.

That's a great book.

I've known a lot of Vietnam vets (it was my generation), but I've only known one suicide, though I know quite a few that still suffer from PTSD.
