Fix idea came to my mind, right now.

Wouldn´t be a list of movies with PTSD-topic a nice thing?

-First Blood
You know, it´s very popular in old Germany, but the Rambo-factor isn´t anymore the biggest part of it´s popularity. We just love, how they brought a very very serious topic on the big screen. And the german synchro does again a perfect job to make the traumatic story an ass-kickin´ experience. And with Col. Trautman as best addition, of course

What other movies come to your mind? :)

First Blood is one of my favorites. It shows the complete lack of respect veterans got coming home from Vietnam. The fact that Rambo travelled to some tiny PNW town to visit a friend, only to discover he's the last one of his company still alive must have been a real blow to him. At the same time, I love how Rambo never directly kills anybody in the entire movie. All the damage he does is completely structural.

"Born on the 4th of July" - There's a scene shown twice in the film. As a child the protagonist witnesses a wounded vet flinching at fire works in a 4th of July parade. Years later after he's paralyzed in Viet Nam he finds himself as the wounded vet flinching and freaking out as fire works sound around him. Two simple, scenes that speaks volumes.
