Abstract Since 2001, more than 2.2 million U.S. veterans have served in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom, or OEF) and Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom, or OIF). Although more than two-fifths of these veterans receive healthcare and social services through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the remainder may seek services elsewhere--from community clinics, primary care providers, and other community centers. This In Brief introduces some of the problems facing OEF and OIF veterans and can help healthcare and social service professionals understand these veterans needs.
