About two thirds

The proportion of "Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and New Veterans (who) reported knowing someone who was killed or seriously injured, lost someone in their immediate unit, or personally saw dead or seriously injured Americans," according to a study recently published online in The American Journal of Hospice & Palliative Care -- Behavioral Activation and Therapeutic Exposure vs. Cognitive Therapy for Grief Among Combat Veterans: A Randomized Clinical Trial of Bereavement Interventions.
"Thus," report the researchers, "it is not surprising that prevalence of Persistent Complex Bereavement Disorder (PCBD) is high in these groups. Importantly, PCBD impact appears to be independent of both Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Major Depressive Disorder (Bonnano, 2007), 2 disorders that are also highly prevalent in these groups, thus tailored treatments for grief are indicated."
