NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT:Discussion: Iraq and Afghanistan

Perhaps even more ominous, the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have eerily similar parallels to Vietnam. There are no front lines, the enemy fades into the population, everyone in the theater of operations is essentially in combat. As a result, vigilance must be constant, 24/7, throughout one’s entire rotation. Degree of combat exposure has been found to be one of the major predictors of PTSD (Miller et al., 2008; Smith et al., 2008), and anybody that goes into the “sandboxes” as they now called can expect just that.There are two major differences in these conflicts. So far there is general public support for the troops, whereas in Vietnam there was not. A support group is critical in any crisis, and this is particularly true of troops in an increasingly unpopular war. Lack of support and outright hatred of returning troops was a major contributing factor for PTSD in Vietnam veterans. However, while the armed forces in the current conflicts are all volunteers and not 18-year-old draftees, there are a tremendous number of reserve units in combat action, and there are also huge differences in the number of women involved in direct combat action. The question then becomes what the use of reservists and women in combat portends for the on- set of PTSD. Preliminary results regarding mental health problems in veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have ranged from 19% to 44% of the samples examined (Hoge, Auchterlonie, & Milliken, 2006; Lapierre, Schweigler, & LaBauve, 2007).

A Web Source/URL that is not a Podcast will receive an assigned grade of zero (0).

• Section I

Students will use the Podcast Evaluation Form to evaluate the integrity of the Podcast. The first page of the form is information about the Web source. Describe the main points presented in the Podcast within a minimum 200 word count using APA format including double- spacing. Discussion of main points demonstrates detail, depth, creativity and critical thinking.

• Section II

Students will evaluate four different criteria related to the Podcast. Please provide a narrative description for each of the four criteria within a minimum 50 word count for each criteria using APA format. These criteria include:

1. Authority and Design 2. Patient-Centered Care 3. Evidence-Based Practice 4. Teaching Foundation

The evaluation form utilizes a 1 (Low) to 5 (High) scale. Please place a check mark in the column that is based on your perception of the Web source. There should only be one mark for

each of the four areas. For example, if you assigned a value of “5” for each of the four criteria the total score would be 20.
