Abstract

Sexual assault in the military is a major concern and may result in significant health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Those developing disabling PTSD symptoms may require a disability evaluation. In this article, theĀ authors examined disability evaluation trends for service women with PTSD to better understand characteristics associated with inability to continue Active Duty service.
