Abstract : This paper was developed to establish a theoretical framework for the role of the Division psychologist in combat. It is based on the author's own experiences and the experience of other behavioral scientists who have provided mental health services to combat units. At this time AMEDD psychologists have no history in this area. Hopefully this paper will provide some assistance for Division psychologists in preparation for the possible contingency of combat.
