High risk of military domestic violence on the home front

High risk of military domestic violence on the home front | Domestic Violence | Scoop.it
During roughly the same period at Fort Carson near Colorado Springs, the number of soldiers charged with domestic violence surged, and domestic abuse in the Army skyrocketed as an increasing number of soldiers returned from lengthy, repeat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and rates of PTSD began to rise. Unlike typical civilian domestic violence, veteran intimate partner violence often occurs in the absence of an attempt to exert financial control; it is an explosion of violence, rather than an escalation; there is typically no "honeymoon" period after the event, as the veteran withdraws in shame; and the violence is more likely to be lethal or potentially lethal in severity. The VA does what Congress mandates, and while the Violence Against Women Act includes provisions to protect Native American women and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community, it offers no protection whatsoever for the wives and caregivers of combat veterans with PTSD and/or traumatic brain injury. The confluence of unprecedented levels of traumatic brain injury, PTSD and other mental health disorders puts the post-9/11 generation of veterans at extremely high risk of perpetrating violence in the home. Under the leadership of Bess Bendet, director of the Blue Shield Against Violence program, the foundation began conducting research and convening community providers and stakeholders to discuss policy and strategies for serving the victims of returning veteran violence. [...] Blue Shield Against Violence has facilitated collaborative endeavors and provided grant funding and cultural competence trainings. Spousal violence when troops return The extent of service-connected domestic violence is unknown, even to the Pentagon, whose data reflect only child abuse and domestic abuse reported to the Department of Defense Family Assistance Program and criminal offenses reported for active duty service branches. According to the military, reports of spousal abuse were on the decline in the early years of the global war on terror but began creeping up around 2006. Active-duty families already had significant barriers to reporting domestic violence, but the potential loss of the household's primary, often only, source of income, along with base housing, military health insurance and retirement benefits, made some military spouses hesitant to report.
