Abstract:

The military organization provides security for the nation similarly the security and psychological health of military personnel often rests with the family -- particularly the wife. Thus, her personal and emotional adjustment is crucial. Although past studies abound in dysfunctional coping responses of wives to stresses of military living, underscored also in much of the literature are the remarkable resiliency and adaptability of these wives, who are truly independent dependents.
