PTSD questions

Are there many people with combat-related PTSD who still lead productive lives, and who are perhaps only moderately affected? Maybe even people with this, who still serve? What would this look like? What degree of symptoms would they have?

Would it be possible for the spouse/partner of such a person, to not have noticed the symptoms until they had been with the person for a while?

Is it possible that at least some of the symptoms would fade over time, with treatment?

I ask this because the information I've googled while researching this character, seems to describe people who are experiencing a very great deal of impairment in their day to day lives than this character experiences. He has impairment... just not to THAT degree...
