During the Gulf War, the Unit for the Treatment of Combat Reactions within the Central Military Mental Health Center of the IDF was active in treating soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Of the 72 referrals, all but 2 were cases of a reactivation of a previous stress reaction. The implications for residual vulnerability amongst even apparently remitted cases are discussed in this essay.
