JRRD at a Glance
Servicemembers face a tough situation being sepa
rated from family and friends during deployment and trying to reintegrate with civilian society postdeployment. While postdeployment studies often focus on the role of the veteran’s family in reintegration, former military unit members may be a key resource to help veterans reintegrate. Servicemembers often form a strong bond with members who served with them when deployed, and this strong connection often carries over into postdeployment. Taking advantage of military friendships could help veterans transition back into civilian society.
