Abstract

This study surveyed Vietnam veterans' perceptions of the impact of their wartime experiences on their current family life. This research used veterans' self-reports of combat exposure, the psychological impact of war service, and family satisfaction and functioning. The results indicated direct effects of war service on psychological impact and direct effects of psychological impact on family satisfaction and functioning. No direct effects were found between war service and family satisfaction and functioning. Implications for family life educators and therapists are included.
