Welcome
As of March 2010 there were more than 36,000 servicemembers injured during OIF/OEF. When you consider that more than half of the active duty force is married,many with children, you realize there are signicantnumbers of families and children who are impacted byparental injuries of war.We know, through research, that military children andfamilies are generally strong and resilient. But wealso know that military families and communities facechallenges their civilian counterparts do not. Parentalwartime injuries are an example. Expert consensus andprofessional involvement with military families and children of the wounded hasshown that beginning with the notication of injury, a cascade of events takesplace that can raise family stress, lead to additional family separation, and raisechild anxiety and worry about parental health and their own safety.“Courage to Care, Courage to Talk” acknowledges the important role familiesplay in the injury recovery process and the importance of family resilience,sustained parenting and appropriate communication about the injury withchildren of all ages to ensure their healthy development.In support of Month of the Military Child, I encourage you to be mindful of thesemilitary family concerns in your own practice and work to educate health carecommunities about the issues confronting military families and how best toaddress them.Enjoy this issue of MHS Vital Signs!Stephen J. Cozza, M.D.Associate Director, Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress, USU
