This brief research report summarizes a study of family stress during a 6-month peacekeeping deployment. Study participants were spouses of soldiers deployed as part of a US Army peacekeeping task force in support of United Nations Protection Forces UNPROFOR in the former Yugoslavia. The results are based on interviews and surveys conducted by the U.S. Army Medical Research Unit-Europe with US Army spouses living in 3 types of military communities in Germany. The study examines individual adjustment to the deployment separation and makes a comparison of how each community responded to the needs of the families. Specific recommendations on ways to increase community organization, community responsiveness and family support group effectiveness are included.
