The Vietnam veteran cracking up in America formed an entire cinematic subgenre in the 70s, but it's useful to recall that these films developed out of a much older hardboiled tradition.

In Edward Dmytryk's film CROSSFIRE, Robert Mitchum has an interesting speech about this subject: "Soldiers don't have anywhere to go unless you tell them where to go. When they're off duty, they go crawling. Or they go crazy".
