Large numbers of Americans have deployed in combat operations in the past decade and may seek health care in civilian, Veterans Affairs (VA), or military settings on return from deployment. The U.S. military currently has nearly 1.5 million active-duty members, with another 850 000 in the Reserves or National Guard. (1) Unless exempted for family or medical reasons, all military, Reserve, and National Guard (Selected Reserves) members are eligible for deployment. As of December 2011, approximately 102 000 were deployed to Afghanistan in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and approximately 50 000 to Iraq in Operation New Dawn (previously known as Operation Iraqi Freedom [OIF]) (2). More than 2.6 million service members have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001, and nearly a million have deployed more than once (3).
