Vietnam Veterans Family Study: Health and social issues in veterans' sons and daughters
Walter Forrest, Ben Edwards, Galina Daraganova
As part of the Vietnam Veterans Family Study, this section investigates the intergenerational effects of service in the Vietnam War on the health of veterans' families. Drawing on data from over 27,000 Vietnam veterans and their families, it examines the physical, mental, social, and economic wellbeing of the sons and daughters of veterans, and the risk, protective and mediating factors involved. Comparisons are made with children of Defence Force personnel who did not deploy during the war.
