    • Works Cited
      “Coming Home: Vietnam Veterans in American Society.” Vietnam War Reference Library. Vol. 3. Detroit: UXL, 2001. 175-186. Gale Virtual Reference Library. Web. 29 Mar. 2010. <http://go.galegroup.com/‌ps/‌retrieve.do?sgHitCountType=None&sort=RELEVANCE&inPS=true&prodId=GVRL&userGroupName=cant48040&tabID=T003&searchId=R1&resultListType=RESULT_LIST&contentSegment=&searchType=BasicSearchForm&currentPosition=1&contentSet=GALE%7CCX3411>. The returning veterans of the Vietnam War were treated the worst out of any of the others. Most Vietnam Vets returned to a society that didn’t care about them, or a society that viewed them with disgust. Veterans were treated poorly and blamed for the trajedy that happened in Vietnam, rather than blaming the government officials that sent them over there.
      “Home From Iraq: HBO, James Gandolfini Focus on New Veterans.” Healthline. N.p., 18 Aug. 2007. Web. 2 Apr. 2010. <http://www.healthline.com/‌blogs/‌healthline_connects/‌2007/‌08/‌home-from-iraq-hbo-james-gandolfini.html>. Depression is a serious problem for returning veterans. This depression, and other mental problems, is causing chaos in family life. Male veterans are twice as likely to commit suicide than male civilians.
      Jamail, Dahr. “Iraq War Vet: ‘We Were Told to Just Shoot People, and the Officers Would Take Care of Us.’” t r u t h o u t. N.p., 7 Apr. 2010. Web. 12 Apr. 2010. <http://www.truthout.org/‌iraq-war-vet-we-were-told-just-shoot-people-and-officers-would-take-care-us58378>. Unprovoked slaughter is common in the military. Soldiers often do this while in casual conversation. They have come to a state of paranoia above most other cases.
      Lagorio, Christine. “Resources: Veteran Mental Health.” CBS News. N.p., 14 Nov. 2007. Web. 29 Mar. 2010. <http://www.cbsnews.com/‌stories/‌2007/‌11/‌13/‌fyi/‌main3495640.shtml>. People can spot signs of suicide for veterans before it happens. Soldiers often call old friends, mainly military. Also, they can be found cleaning old weapons they have as war souvenirs.
      Michaud, Chris. “Rise in homicides by US Iraq war vets -NY Times.” Reuters 12 Jan. 2008: n. pag. Web. 29 Mar. 2010. <http://www.reuters.com/‌article/‌idUSB398610>. At least 121 Iraq veterans have committed a killing. There has been a 90% increase in homicides committed by veterans since 2001. The majority of them had no crimiinal records previously.

      Newhouse, Eric. “Legislation Aims to Improve Veterans’ Mental Health Services.” t r u t h o u t. N.p., 31 Mar. 2009. Web. 12 Apr. 2010. <http://www.truthout.org/‌033109C>. Legislation passed a law that would step up mental health screenings for returning veterans. The purpose of this is to find PTSD, TBI, or severe depression in veterans. This law applies to all fields of military.
      Platoni, Kathy. “Warning Signs, Triggers, and Coping Strategies.” Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts Veterans Ministry. N.p., 11 Dec. 2008. Web. 12 Apr. 2010. <http://massepiscopalvets.typepad.com/‌diocese_of_massachusetts_/‌2008/‌12/‌adapted-from-pre-publication-excerpts-scurfield-raymond-dsw-lcsw-from-the-vietnam--and-gulf-wars-to-911-and-iraq-veter.html>. There are many warning signs that show difficulty in transition from the battlefield to home. The reminders that can trigger these events ranges from the five sense, to emotional statements. This can greatly affect how a veteran lives his normal life.
