Our never-ending wars and PTSD

SOMETHING TO CONTEMPLATE WHILE WE ARE WRITING THE NEXT POST

Who do you think would have a higher incidence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, the regular active-duty full time soldier, or the reservist, who spends most of his time with family and career, and then gets sent of to war?

What about the civilian/soldier who got drafted, back in the days when we had a draft ?(The draft ended in 1973, when we ended our military involvement in Vietnam.)

How long has this problem been studied?
