About the Project

Operation: SAFETY (Soldiers And Families Excelling Through the Years) is a longitudinal research study which will examine the health and well-being of U.S. Army Reserve/National Guard Soldiers and their partners.  


The purpose is to explore how reserve soldiers and their partners impact each others’ physical and mental well-being. The knowledge gained from the study can be used to help design interventions that improve the physical and mental well-being of military reserve soldiers and their families.
