Abstract The paper refers to the vast field of human effectiveness (HE) issues within the area of Human Factor and Medicine Panel (HMF). The best fit among the relevant topics of the Symposium seems to be: Family-Service Member Functioning. The simple and provocative question is addressed by the Authors: Do the service members who participate in military (combat, peace-making and humanitarian) operations really differ from the rest of the military personnel and from the society as a whole - regarding the quality-of-life indicators obtained from survey research. The answer seems to be crucial for the strategy of maintaining the well-being of service members and their families within their natural social environments as well as within the military organization. The Authors describe the findings of the survey conducted in March 2010 by the Department of Psychiatry and Combat Stress among the Polish Military Contingents (PKW) veterans and their colleagues from regular troops of the Polish Military remaining at home in their garrisons. For the sake of comparative analysis the same survey tool was adopted as the one prepared by the renown Polish survey agency for the needs of the unprecedented survey on the Quality of Life in Poland made in 2007 on the huge national sample of 38.890 interviews that allows for extremely deep comparative data mining across specific segments of Polish society. A comparative analysis concerning the quality of life indicators shows that the PKW veterans achieve no lower scores then their colleagues from regular garrison troops. At the same time they do not differ from the Reference Segment of Polish population with one only but striking exception concerning general life prospects and the non-material aspects of vocational life.
