New Study on Post-9/11 Veterans

Postby bbontemps » Fri Oct 21, 2011 9:06 am

Here's an interesting new study just released on October 5, 2011 about post-9/11 veterans.

This study titled "War and Sacrifice in the Post-9/11 Era" focuses on the attitudes of veterans and the general public toward military service. The study found that about 84% of post-9/11 veterans feel the public does not understand problems faced by service members, veterans and their families; 71% of the public agree.

Other findings of the study include: 44% of post-9/11 veterans say their readjustment to civilian life was difficult. However, only 25% of veterans who served in earlier eras say the same. About half (48%) of all post-9/11 veterans say they have experienced strains in family relations since leaving the military, and 47% say they have had frequent outbursts of anger. One-third (32%) say there have been times where they felt they didn’t care about anything.

The complete findings of the study are available on the Pew Research Center website. Reflecting back to 40+ years ago, I found this report very interesting. Hope many of you will also. Copy and paste this link to your web brouser:
