Palo Alto, California (CNN) - It wasn't until five months after Army Staff Sgt. June Moss returned from the Iraq war in 2003 that her real battle began. The horrors of the war - witnessing decapitated and burned bodies amid mass destruction - led to post-traumatic stress disorder.
"I do notice when I'm stressing out that I start having dreams about what I saw and how I felt," says Moss, now 40 and retired from the Army. "It does come back as if to haunt you."
