Abstract:

Several key studies have been initiated by the US Department of Defense DoD and the US Department of Veterans Affairs VA to provide critical information on the short-and long-term health and well-being of US military service members and veterans. As such, these research studies are vital in understanding emerging health conditions, including respiratory symptoms and conditions, among US military personnel returning from recent conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and neighboring countries. In this chapter, several key epidemiological and clinical studies that can provide critical data in the area of respiratory outcomes among service members and veterans are reviewed. These studies include - the Millennium Cohort Study MCS, - STAMPEDE Study of Active Duty Military for Pulmonary Disease Related to Environmental Deployment Exposure, - Million Veteran Program MVP, and - National Health Study for a New Generation of US Veterans.
