Soldiers can return from war with a number of conditions, injuries, and aggravated preexisting conditions. According to Veteran's Affairs (VA)
, 60,000 U.S. service personnel have been wounded or have struggled with psychological disorders in the wake of their tours in Iraq since 2003. The percentage of amputees
is the highest since the Civil War and the VA estimates that up to one-third of all those who have served in Iraq suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
