Community Reintegration of Servicemembers (CRIS) is a new measure of community reintegration. Prior to the current study, the measurement properties of CRIS had not been examined in younger veterans or in those with severe injuries. This study tested CRIS with seriously injured combat veterans. We collected data from 68 subjects from the Center for the Intrepid in two sessions 3 months apart. We examined reliability, validity, and responsiveness of CRIS. Results suggest that CRIS is a sound test to measure community reintegration in severely wounded servicemembers.
