Title: Long-term Consequences of Modern Military Service
Lead Author: Segal, David
Abstract: What are the long-term consequences of serving in a modern, all-volunteer military? Contemporary research has not had access to sufficiently powerful and timely data to help us analyze the impact of military service on those sent by the United States to conduct our current military campaigns. The armed forces are the largest single employer in the nation, employing nearly 2.5 million people between the active and reserve forces. The social scientific community should support a large-scale longitudinal data collection effort to systematically capture information about a population too often marginalized from national surveys using the civilian population as a sampling frame. Such data would have long-lasting and far-reaching consequences for research in sociology, demography, economics and psychology. We now have a new generation of combat-experienced war veterans and their families re-integrating into a society that has very little data available to study and understand that process.
