I'm watching The Master again now, and this time I've kept an eye out for Freddie's mental state stemming from the war. Looking at that, I think it is a big aspect of what made Freddie the man he now is when the movie starts. Of course, in the beginning, he is in a military hospital, where they're discussing the mental struggles of the combat veteran.
Also, seeing the scene again where Freddie is walking back and forth from the wall to the window, I noticed that every time he made a "realization", where he felt something not literal, it was at the window. He couldn't see the wall as anything but a wall, and it constantly frustrated him. I think this comes from his desire to be free, and his fear of confinement. This is mirrored by the motorcycle scene later.
