    Why is that some individuals who has served in the army have problems succeeding in any of their relationships of the opposite sex?

      PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) can cause difficulties with intimacy.

        Thanks for your comment. How about a individual that have not experienced  PTSD while serving in the army nor fought in any wars?

          You don't have to have seen live combat to have PTSD from being in the military.  There are plenty of traumatizing things on a daily basis, in training alone.  Also, it can be very difficult for people to adjust back to "normal" life after the rigid structure and authoritarianism of military service.
