Summary

Military service members and veterans face some different health issues than civilians. During combat, the main health concerns are life-threatening injuries. These include
  • Shrapnel and gunshot wounds
  • Lost limbs
  • Head and brain injuries
There may also be a risk of health problems from exposure to environmental hazards, such as contaminated water, chemicals, and infections.
Being in combat and being separated from your family can be stressful. The stress can put service members and veterans at risk for mental health problems. These include anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and substance abuse. Suicide can also be a concern.
