Abstract : This study examines the extent to which combat driving behaviors and anxieties are carried-over into driving on American roads post-deployment from service in Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND) and to compare such behaviors in Service Members (SMs) who have and have not served in these combat operations and who do and do not have mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The study has struggled to gain access to subjects, finally achieving access to FT Gordon this year. Two other sites (FT Campbell and FT Bragg) are in process as is USARIEM. This month, FT Gordon PI (S. Mooney) begins distribution of surveys. Personnel are also in training for telephone survey option and survey questions. No findings to report at this time.
