Military Service, Combat Service, and Criminal Behavior among Veterans: Comparing Volunteers and Conscripts

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Recent media coverage of the troubled readjustment to civilian life of some Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans reawakened debate over the relationship between war experience and post-service criminal involvement. But the notion that there is a causal link between combat service and future violence is a fairly recent and controversial idea, fueled in part by disagreements about the wisdom of the Iraq war and contradictory findings from previous research. This paper uses data from the Surveys of Inmates in State and Federal Correctional Facilities (SISFCF) and the Current Population Survey (CPS) from 1974 to 2004 to estimate the prevalence and nature of offending by military veterans in civilian society. The project examines the differences in offense patterns among veterans who served in the military during the draft and all volunteer force eras as well as differences among those who served during times of conflict.
