Pete, I salute you for your service.
I also suffered from PTSD after my Vietnam experience. What helped me out was going back to my roots.
I went back to the little town where I was born in Portugal. I lived there for a year and after that I came back and was able to settle down and get married, raise three kids and eventually retire and move to Florida.
After the bumps life has been good. I like to see service Men or Women in their uniforms and if it hurts anyone, they just have to work out their problems just like we did.
