Abstract : Military family separation invariably requires that the family adjust to change imposed by the absence of the parent. The resulting stress has often been reported in the literature. But just as separation brings stress to the military family, the members experience still added stresses when father returns. In the past policies of the military organization regarding family separation and reunion have been insensitive to the family's needs. However, in recent years families are being afforded increasing supportive social services during these periods of family disruption. (Author)
