Abstract:Soldiers serving in Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Iraq) are returning home with a barrage of psychological and neurological problems. These efforts in the Middle East are different from any other war in history because there is no defined front line. Soldiers return with complaints of depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, somatic symptoms, and traumatic brain injuries. Sixty-nine service members from all branches of the United States military (Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force) were surveyed using the Beck Depression Inventory, second edition (BDI-II); Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI); Impact of Event Scale, Revised (IES-R); and a brief demographic questionnaire. No significant differences in symptom endorsement were expected between soldiers who saw direct combat and those who did not due to the nature of these particular wars. After completing a Multiple Analysis of Variance, results indicated no significant differences in any measure except the Intrusion subscale of the IES-R. Additionally, no differences in symptom endorsement were found between different branches of military service. These results suggest that those who saw direct combat experienced more intrusive thoughts than those without direct combat experience. The implications of the study suggest the need for more comprehensive and more frequent mental health screenings of service members to ensure that problems are caught early on, and that service members (and their families) are able to receive treatment before symptoms become more intrusive and debilitating.
