For U.S. veterans who experienced trauma in service to our country, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), resources exist to help ensure that needed care is provided. Visit VA's Where to Get Help for PTSD webpage. Symptoms of PTSD can range from mild to severe. At times the symptoms may make it more likely that the sufferer will get in trouble with others, or with the law (see the VA's Criminal behavior and PTSD webpage and Keeping Veterans Out of the Criminal Justice System). Recent legal cases have considered combat stress as a mitigating factor at sentencing.
