Univ. of Michigan to study impact of military deployment

U-M to study impact of deployment on Army men, women

Researchers at the University of Michigan will undertake the most comprehensive study to date on unique stressors facing men and women in the U.S. Army deployed in Iraq and elsewhere, the university announced today.

Beginning in April, faculty and staff from the U-M Institute for Social Research will interview 1,200 randomly selected servicemen and women to assess how deployment affects their mental, emotional and physical health and how stressors may affect their willingness to re-enlist.

Let Murdoc guess: The study will show how harmful military deployment is and that it’s likely to cause soldiers to choose to not reenlist.

Then they’ll ignore all the months that reenlistment has met or exceeded requirements (and even expectations) since the invasion of Iraq. Or at least press coverage of the studies results will.
