Fear and Moral Implications

Can the fear and moral implications of inflicting mortal danger upon others potentially contribute to the development of post-traumatic stress? 

I read an article recently about the use of modern warfare and  post-traumatic stress. The article was exploring the development of post-traumatic stress on drone operators who are pushing buttons to operate vehicles on the other side of the world.  Does their lack of "traditional combat experience" make them less susceptible to developing post-traumatic stress?   
Great question, based on my experiences with PTSD, I tend to personally think the answer is no.  I see their position as being similar to that of being on a Navy Warship.  They may not be on land, but it doesn't mean they are out of the woods or off the radar.  PTSD does not discriminate and it definitely dances a fine line with how someone feels about their position morally at the time of trauma.
