Secondary Research Colton

My paper is focusing on the impact the Vietnam war had on Mary Anne Bell and Tim O'Brien.  So my research is focused the mental effects of war. 
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD and shell shock are caused because the brain's attempts to cope with the horrible experiences of war and failings so the solider is forever changed. PTSD causes soldiers to sufferer because they will often recall and re-experience the specific trauma of war, perhaps when they dream, or even when they think or close their eyes.
What soldiers experience during the war changes them and they find it hard to be the same person they were before the war. Some may say that they cannot have close bonds with loved ones because the experience of near death and the fear that they will leave someone behind.
 Throughout the book  it gives examples of people changing because of the war and I'm hoping to use some of this information to make my paper better.
