Abstract

Current United States active-duty military (AD) service members and spouses are at an increased risk of developing various types of cancer at a higher rate reported than their military predecessors (Defense Health Research Programs, 2017; Zhu et al., 2009; Steinmaus et al., 2004). Active-duty service members and spouses also face challenges not faced by their civilian counterparts because of the military lifestyle and “mission first” culture. These challenges can include being geographically separated from families, friends, along with deployments, frequent moves, and the lack of consistent support systems. Therefore, when AD service members and spouses are diagnosed with cancer, psychosocial needs may not be met.
