Returning soldiers ‘more likely to commit violent crimes at home if they witnessed traumatic events in combat’ – Americas – World – The Independent

Soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are more likely to commit violent crimes at home if they have witnessed traumatic events during active combat, according to the first detailed study into violent offending in the military.

An investigation of nearly 14,000 military personnel found that about 20 per cent of young servicemen under the age of 30 had at least one conviction for a violent offence compared with less than 7 per cent for young men of a similar age in the general population.
