    Isn't that really the point, with or without PTSD?

    There is an entire subculture/industry that preys on vets and their families with financial scams, hoaxes, and paranoia.

    That's what's new - that there is a paranoid subculture that takes vulnerable vets and encourages them to fantasize about killing sprees in online circle jerks at sites like TheBlaze.
