Vietnam Veterans Sue Military over PTSD

NEW HAVEN, Conn_Some Vietnam War veterans are pursuing a class action lawsuit against the military this morning.


They say they were discharged on other than honorable conditions due to suffering from PTSD before it was recognized. The lawsuit is based in Connecticut but would represent tens of thousands of veterans who have been unable to receive benefits. 

One of the veterans in the case says if he were discharged today he would be treated for having a service-connected medical condition and would still have his military benefits.
