Was he on the Forrestal? Every Navy recruit is required to watch the documentary on the USS Forrestal fire during the Damage Control phase of Bootcamp.

As for PTSD, I worked as a clerk at a VA Readjustment Counseling Center in San Bernardino, Ca. I had just gotten off of Active Duty and was going to college and drilling with the Active Reserves. It was a VA Work-Study program where they paid you minimum wage (tax-free though!) for answering phones and filing away records. Anyways, a lot of these guys were WWII, Korean War and Vietnam vets that were seriously sick. Sometimes I would sit in on some of their group sessions and listen to them talk about horrific experiences. A lot of them would break down and cry and then I'd start crying too because I felt bad for them. Some of them were Great-Grandfathers! I was on the fence about PTSD until I worked at that place.

Re: How Tough are You?

I'm tough enough to do pretty much whatever I need to do, but nothing extraordinary, I think.
