Returning Home from Iraq and Afghanistan:
Assessment of Readjustment Needs of Veterans, Service Members, and Their Families

Requested by Congress in P.L. 110-181, this new report from the Institute of Medicine offers a detailed assessment of the physical and mental health needs and other readjustment issues faced by current and former Armed Forces members who have been deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The report also examines the needs of returning service members' families.

This is the second and final of two reports. The interim can be found here.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on March 26, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
