Vietnam War veterans’ mental health comparing to other wars’ veterans

360 viewsOther

I noticed that a lot of media and publications talk about Vietnam War veterans suffering from PTSD and other psychological/mental health issues.
What was so devastating in this specific war comparing to other wars (i.e. WW1 and WW2) that caused so many vets’ trauma?
Or is it a matter of fact that during previous wars mental health care was less developed?

WW veterans spending weeks on a ship, talking with guys with similar experiences, going home to a heros welcome, probably helped compared to going straight from a war zone to home on a short plane flight with random people and a less than warm welcome
