The military is unique; its members face stresses unlike those of other institutions. It is one of the few occupations where injury and death are constant companions. The armed forces of the world have been called upon to serve many roles, from direct combat to occupational, constabulary (peacekeeping), and even humanitarian. Some social workers may serve as active members of the military, while others respond to the needs of soldiers, veterans, and military families through civilian roles with governmental and voluntary agencies. This chapter discusses the stress of combat in the soldier, the military family, and the social worker in the military setting.
