Re: Roga Danar-Captain Angosia?

Roga Danar was essentially an allegory for how Vietnam veterans were treated after coming home. Veterans were sometimes shunned, despised, feared, and spit upon for doing work many had been forced into (the draft was still in effect). Many did have trouble readjusting to civilian life, and post traumatic stress syndrome wasn't commonly understood at the time (such men were often described as shell-shocked).
