To the Editor: The study on the neuropsychological outcomes of combat duty in Iraq by Dr Vasterling and colleagues1 is an important contribution that used strong methods, with predeployment and postdeployment measures, a nondeployed control comparison, and a battery of objective outcomes. However, the data suggest to me a different interpretation than that reached by the authors.
