The need to commemorate and remember is as evident
now as it was in the past. Recent estimates
indicate that approximately 300,000 veterans of
Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom report
symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and
severe depression. These disorders have resulted
from combat-related traumatic brain injury and from
taking part in or viewing traumatic events.
Experiencing a memorial might reduce symptoms of
PTSD. Popular and scholarly articles have been
written on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as an art
object and some have also addressed the Memorial’s
psychological effects. Yet, no one has attempted to
synthesize this literature to inform a comprehensive
understanding of how the design of the Memorial may
impact Vietnam War combat veterans’ PTSD. This
book shares an empirical study of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam War combat
veterans who use it. The study’s findings have
implications for a wide-range of settings including
memorials and hospitals.
