One hundred thirty-eight Naval Aviation Officers who had been prisoners of war in Southeast Asia were returned to the United States in 1973. As part of a planned longitudinal study, extensive medical evaluations were conducted at repatriation and annually thereafter. A psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist completed a mental status examination and filled out a mental status form during each examination period. The mental status form was quantified, and the results correlated with a number of demographic, health, behavioral, and adaptational variables. Significant correlations were found between the mental status scores and the other variables. Author
