The 82 surviving crew members of the U.S.S. Pueblo were evaluated psychiatrically 48 to 72 hours after their release from North Korea. Slightly more than half the crew admitted to experiencing significant anxiety or depression during captivity. Factors associated with poorer adjustment included immaturity, passive-dependency, and obsessive-compulsiveness. Those with schizoid personalities tolerated the imprisonment well. Previous descriptions of a repatriation syndrome in prisoners of war, consisting of initial apathy followed by anger and hostility. were confirmed.
