Abstract

A statistical study of all patients in the aeromedical system who entered Travis Air Force Base during a six-month period reveals the percentage of psychiatric patients (by individual military service) and also the percentage of patients with psychoses, neuroses, and character disorders. Studies during World War II and the Korean War are utilized to assess the effectiveness of present-day preventive psychiatric practices in the military. The author also discusses the effect of the Vietnamese war on psychiatric patients at David Grant USAF Hospital.
