Those who try to help veterans deal with the trauma of war report that women soldiers face many of the same mental health issues as their male counterparts.   And some older veterans may be dealing with an additional issue: "You hear a lot about that there is PTSD [post traumatic stress disorder] among women as well. One thing we hear about mainly with the older female veterans is military sexual trauma or MST." Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs spokesperson Mike Allegre says some women report being abused during a time when they were a smaller minority in the military. He says they see MST in veterans who served in the 1950's on up to the 1990's. To help these women, veterans groups are now aware of the problem and offering female counselors to those female veterans suffering from military sexual trauma.
