Work focused on acquiring, processing, and analyzing multiple data sets for the retrospective study that will test hypotheses generated from the socio-ecological framework of the factors correlated with violence perpetration by active duty soldiers and marines. Multiple data sets including information on approximately 1.9 million soldiers and marines who were on active duty between 2000 and 2012 were acquired and processed the data acquisition for the retrospective study is complete except for one dataset from the Army containing crime information for which we continue to submit requests. For the prospective study, two instruments one for enlisted personnel, the other for leadership were developed and tested in house a protocol for pilot testing the instrument with veterans is being negotiated with RTIs IRB. IRB approval from RTIs IRB for fielding the prospective study two waves of data collection at six military installations is pending a small revision once approval is received materials will be submitted to the NHRC IRB and HARPO. In addition, Health Risk Behavior survey data were obtained and analyzed to test hypotheses about risk and protective factors and criminal and risk taking behavior a manuscript was drafted and will be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal early next year. A poster providing information on the study was presented at the 2014 Military Health Services Research Symposium.
