About the Study
This research study is designed to get a more accurate sense of behaviors and experiences associated with combat deployments in Operations Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Enduring Freedom (OEF). This kind of information is sorely needed for two reasons:
- There is great uncertainty about the kinds of issues facing OIF/OEF service members and veterans. Current estimates of difficulties vary widely across studies due, in part, to the kinds of questions asked and the way those questions are asked.
- Getting more accurate information about deployment and post-deployment challenges and difficulties ought to help in understanding and meeting the needs and concerns of OIF/OEF active duty service members and veterans.
