Today's Cavalcade offers a look at how the soldiers are treated who have suffered traumatic neurosis of war. This illness used to be known as shell shock, but now its official name is battle fatigue. This is the case history of a B-17 waist gunner, called Sergeant Doug Bennett. The story begins at an army air forces hospital, where Sergeant Doug Bennett is recalling his arrival at the hospital, and his state of mind at that time.
