This appendix includes the text of the first two VA Circulars published for this study. The first VA Circular, 10-87-138, was published in December 1987 and dealt with the examination of only POWs. It is here included without the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R (SCID) form. The second VA Circular, 10-88-117, was published in October 1988 and dealt only with the examination of non-POW veteran controls. A later VA Circular, 10-90-070, published in June 1990, superseded these earlier two circulars, but it is essentially a compilation of the earlier two and thus is not included here.
Single copies of the SCID and the psychological forms (VA Forms 10-20844-a through 10-20844-d) are available from the author.
