Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is considered to appear as one of the consequences from the war (Prior, n.p.). It is regarded as a serious deviation of psychological norms of a person and may lead to unpleasant implications.

Such position is considered to be ridiculous as people who have take part in war have memories and they are forced to live with these flashbacks in their minds.
