Trauma in Afghanistan
Deborah had PTSD related to traumas experienced during deployment in Afghanistan six years previously. She witnessed loss of Afghani and American lives and significant injuries multiple times. She feared for her life when in armored vehicles going into combat situations, as improvised explosive devices could be encountered at any time.
As a soldier, Deborah was trained and prepared for such things to some extent. Of course, having many of those sorts of gruesome experiences over time was nonetheless challenging for her. However, they were not the major traumatic events that compelled her to seek therapy.
