Abstract:

of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, including Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and the recent operations in Iraq, Operation New Dawn. These operations were marked by multiple long deployments nearly half of service members who deployed did so more than once during this time frame, with many serving in theater several times. Evidence suggests that a substantial number of service members have experienced combat and operational stress-related problems, such as posttraumatic stress disorder and depression, and others have been faced with ongoing problems as a result of traumatic brain injury TBI Tanielian and Jaycox, 2008. Family members such as spouses and children of deployed service members have also experienced psychological health concerns as a consequence of the ongoing stress of these deployments.
