This chapter continues to prepare the reader to understand and appreciate the garrison duties of combat social workers (CSWs) and their day-to-day duties. Military social worker duties are similar to those within U.S. Veterans Administration and other institutions: administration, supervision, and direct practice. But a very special job of social workers within the military, including but not limited to CSWs, is to care for those who were deployed and their families. This includes services for combat social workers, as the authors note. This, at times, is challenging for CSWs who must not only care for themselves but for many clients they live near.
