Statistical evidence, last I checked the documenation from WWI and
WWII, would suggest that DSS cases kept near the front (close enough
to hear and/or be a minor if background part of the combat experience)
recover more than those entirely removed from the area.  Own view: The
trick seems to be to be close enough that it was part of the environ,
but far enough away that the person could gradually come to be able to
causitively address and control his participation.
