Wait, where does Chrom mention having flashbacks and nightmares? I didn't notice any such thing and even reread the script for chapter 6, but still no mention of something of the sort.

For the entry under Fan Fic's about Shaggy being one of these from Vietnam. I think I found that Fan Fic but I am not sure.

Here is the link if someone could provide a second opinion.

This is an All-Blue Entry. Describing the example with just potholes is poor fashion. It needs some more context.

I think this topic should be either split or renamed. Most of the examples are about someone suffering from PTSD, but only half of those could be described as 'veterans' of any kind. Maybe PTSD should get its own page and this one should be a subpage. Alternatively simply change the trope to be more of a general 'shell shock' trope.

I actually thought the same thing about an independant PTSD page (unless it already exists, but it doesn't seem to be the case). Overall, I think your idea is good, though I'd like to hear others opinions on the subject.

Also, in the case of a PTSD page, we would have to check the YKTTW section.

Agreed. We need a PTSD split.

Hey there, leaving a notice and a motion to remove the second page quote from Babylon 5. Personally, I think it requires either knowledge of the series or expository context to fully understand the implications of the quote, which I feel the first page quote already does quite well. Giving this a week, then will pull myself. It'll be on the quotes page for future reference.

I know nobody ever answers these things but...

Can this overlap with Cloud Cuckoo Lander? A Cloud Cuckoo Lander is a character that is in her/his own little world and a Shell-Shocked Veteran is a chracter who believes they are still in a world at war.

I also have an idea for a character and I want to know if this matchs the definition of the Shell-Shocked Veteran:
His patriotism and dedication to his country and the agency led him to make many deep personal sacrifices that cost him his family and friends. Soon, he lost faith in his ideals and his sole main comfort is the rush of the Cloak & Dagger game. When the agency was reduced to a all-bark-and-no-bite bureacratic agency, the taking away of his sole comfort was the final straw that caused him to make a Face–Heel Turn into a Rogue Agent.

... No. There's something, but it isn't enough to go on, I don't think. The two meet under the banner of insanity; and most shell-shocked veteran's aren't usually mad, and Cloud Cuckoo-Landers are not necessarily insane either.
