For the Vietnam war. Laugh it up, drown it, try to bury it, let the psycho loose to play, ... all the tricks to no avail, but don't discuss it or inconvenience anyone with it. Let it eat you.
There was also The Hurt Locker with its brief sequence of waking up from the war zone, and finding one self pushing a shopping cart in a supermarket. That was so graphic it made my eyes pop.
