Abstract : United States Navy personnel have deployed in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom more than any other past conflicts. This study assessed effects of deployment risk factors (i.e., combat exposure, prior deployments, component type, immediate risk for post traumatic stress and/or depression, and pre-deployment mental health care) on Navy personnels risk for depression and post traumatic stress disorder 3 to 6 months post-deployment. Post-deployment (n = 1,052) and full deployment (n = 687) samples of U.S. Navy personnel gathered from the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Activity (AFHSA) were used in this study.
