US troops suffer post-war trauma

Post-traumatic stress disorder is blamed for a spike in army suicides and murders.

    Some estimates suggest that as many as one in three American soldiers may be affected by post-traumatic stress disorder.

    The ailment is invisible, and sometimes deadly - blamed for a spike in army suicides, murders and depression.

    But some soldiers say the army only considers physical injuries to be real ones.
