Recent news arti­cles have shared the impact of lengthy and repeated mil­i­tary deploy­ments on mem­bers of the US Mil­i­tary as well as their spouses. New research look­ing at chil­dren with at least one par­ent deployed to Oper­a­tion Iraqi Free­dom or Oper­a­tion Endur­ing Free­dom shows that the length of deploy­ment also has an impact on the men­tal health diag­noses of their children.

Since 2001, approx­i­mately two mil­lion mem­bers of the mil­i­tary were deployed one or more times. Con­sid­er­ing that 44% of active duty mil­i­tary mem­bers had chil­dren as of 2009, this is an increas­ingly impor­tant con­sid­er­a­tion for all com­mu­ni­ties.
