Abstract : Occupational stress in the military is not limited to the stress of direct combat, nor to emotional stress. This technical note presents papers describing Army programs that address such physiological stressors as dehydration or frostbite, such life-style syndromes as Type-A Behavior," and stresses felt by the family members of soldiers who deploy on combat missions. Also offered are discussions on combat and post-combat stress reactions experienced by various soldiers in our most recent major war, the Persian Gulf Conflict of 1991, and on the stresses germane to the environment in which military nurses work. The papers were originally presented in a symposium on Stress in the 90s, jointly sponsored by the American Psychological Association and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, in Washington, D.C., November, 1992. They are published here to afford broad dissemination of this sample of Army programs.
