Military life can be incredibly challenging. Long deployments, exposure to combat situations, frequent relocations, and even temporary duty assignments take service members away from home and their families.
These challenges impact not only service members but also their spouses and children in a variety of ways, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorders, and family and relationship problems. Many of these effects can last long after leaving the military.
