Salt Lake City, Utah – During the Civil War, doctors called it melancholia or insanity. In the World Wars it came to be known as shell-shock and later combat fatigue. But by any other name, post-traumatic stress disorder has been an invisible plague on soldiers as long as wars have been waged.

They'll talk about the history PTSD from the Civil War to today and about what it means for soldiers and their families.
