BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Researchers at Western Washington University have received a grant to explore how military service effects individual behavior. Sociology Professor Jay Teachman has been awarded a $265,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to study the relationship between military service and troubled behavior. Over the course of three years, Teachman and his team will analyze data build on previous research done on the subject. Teachman says despite the negative ideas that people have about how military service effects behavior, researchers actually know very little. This study will determine the effect of troubled behaviors in the military before and after 9/11.
