PTSD Rates Not So High Among UK Veterans

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8677941.stm
about 4% of their vets have PTSD
rate is stable there

the US rate is 10-15% and climbing
maybe it's not the fighting that's making everyone jumpy
the article suggests that the use of alcohol in bonding and stress relief of servicemen may be causal
