Large Study Focuses On US Military Families Dealing With Bereavement

The AP (1/5, Crary) reports that “widows, widowers, parents, siblings and children are sharing accounts of their grief as part of the largest study ever of America’s military families as they go through bereavement.” The Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress at the Maryland-based Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences is conducting the study, which includes “about 2,000 people” and has gone on for about three years. Those who can participate are members of the “families of the more than 19,000 service members from all branches of the military who have died on active duty since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, regardless of whether the death resulted from combat, accident, illness, suicide or other causes.”
