Abstract:

The United States has deployed an unprecedented number of U.S.federal government civilians to theaters of conflict over the past twodecades to perform a wide variety of tasks, from administrative supportto development assistance and diplomatic functions. As more civilianshave deployed, increasing numbers have been exposed to highthreatenvironments and high levels of stress. Studies of civilians, bothgovernment-employed and contractors, deployed to theaters of conflictover the past two decades indicate that combat exposure and relatedstressors correlate with significant levels of deployment-related healthconditions for this population. Anecdotal evidence further confirmsthat deployed civilians face similar deployment-related challenges asthose experienced by military personnel, in terms of health conditionsand family challenges associated with lengthy deployments. Based onthis prior work and evidence, there is likely a need for civilian postdeploymentreintegration support.
