My husband is a combat veteran (Vietnam) and has PTSD symptoms that might be called mild. Mild, in clinical terms, is not mild, like calm weather. You could say functioning PTSD. It fills our household, and I appreciate how Kander talks about secondary PTSD, the effect on spouses of living in the PTSD environment. PTSD must be rampant as a result of the Bush wars and their aftermath in all subsequent administrations. The war never ends.
