"I was worried clean through. I didn't want to go and kill. I believed in my Bible," Alvin York, Medal of Honor Winner, World War I.
When U.S. servicemen and women return from war, they often return home plagued by anxiety, depression and sometimes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced shocking, frightening or dangerous events. And while the number of affected veterans is high, emerging treatments are improving their chances for recovery.
