1. What stress-related behaviors did you recognize within the scenario? • Recklessness or indiscipline • Malingering • Self-inflicting wounds

2. Which COSR risk factors did you recognize? • Anxious • Depression • Physical function disturbance • Disruptive forms • Memory loss

3. Based on the scenario, what leader actions would you implement? Why? • Identify which situations or events increase stress or COSR: this will better equip leaders to prevent, lessen or, divert stress away from their Soldiers. • Compensate by reducing other stressors: this will aid in focusing Soldiers on the task at hand. • Take corrective actions and measures: providing visible results, actions, or consequences sends clear messages to other Soldiers in the unit. • Get advice from mental health personnel and/or combat stress personnel: utilizing medical personnel and subject matter experts will greatly aid in preventing or reducing COSR casualties.

4. Describe insight or value that you acquired from this practical exercise.

The scenario provided a lot of insight as to the reactions that many soldiers have in certain situations. The soldier killing the insurgent as a “mercy killing” was surprising. In a way, that particular part provided insight as to my own thinking. I knew what he did was wrong. But in a way, I still understood it. I understand that it may have just been an excuse. But what if the soldier really did mean what he said. If so, I almost don’t blame him. And although I do not believe that I would have taken the same action. The mere fact that I can see his reasoning surprises me.

Being able to read this coupled with my own experiences, I hope, provide me with information that may help perform my job better as well as know what to watch out for when it comes to my soldiers. That is the value that I…...

Women in Combat

...Women in Combat “Your Momma wears combat boots,” this phrase will soon become true. In May 2012, the United States Marine Corps decided to start opening combat related Military Occupational Skills (MOS) for women. A MOS a specific job a Marine is trained to specialize in, and only preforms this specific job while in the Marine Corps. Is America ready to send their willing service women into combat? There is still a wide controversy on this topic, but I believe the majority of America is ready. This new development with the merge of women into combat could have been supported a lot sooner than May2012, in my opinion. Women were serving in combat related situation, well before America was aware of it. There are many benefits to allow women to go into combat, such as; the boost in moral, the lowering of disciplinary actions among male Marines, the improvement of physical hygiene, and the lowered stress levels among Marines. As a female marine my MOS was combat engineer. I chose this for the simple facts that that was one of the only MOS allowing women close to combat. I did this, because I wanted my time serving to actually make a difference, although paper pushing is important, I wanted to accomplish something much bigger. I served in Iraq during 2008-2009. Even though it was just a few years ago, women still weren’t aloud to be on the front lines. I was aloud to go on patrols in the MRAPS, and HUMVEES. The MRAP is a larger up armored combat vehicle, which seats six......

Research on Combat Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

...Ty Meeks Psych 32 April 15, 2012 Research on Combat Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder The first reported case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder dates back nearly 3000 years. In 1000BC an Egyptian combat veteran named Hori wrote, “You determine to go forward. Shuddering seizes you, the hair on your head stands on end, your soul lies in your hand” (Dyer). Since the beginning of wars men have been terrified of dyeing, and subjected to horrific scenes of devastation. This constant mental and physical stress can lead to numerous lasting complications in combat veterans. In 1678 Swiss military physicians finally identified the unusual behaviors among their combat veterans and gave it the medical name “Nostalgia” (Bentley). Since that time many militaries around the world have been studying the effects of war on their troops. It was not till the Civil war that the US first took an active approach to handling those afflicted with the disorder. In his article Bentley wrote, “During the Civil War the psychological symptoms from war became so common, field commanders as well as medical doctors pleaded with the War Department to provide some type of screening to eliminate recruit susceptible to psychiatric breakdown.” The first military hospitals were finally opened in 1863 to deal with the large numbers of mental breaks caused by the war. The US finally gave this condition a name after WWI. They believed that the impact of the shells......

Combat Stress

...Combat Stress Yan E Oei ECPI University Abstract This research paper investigates the neurological disorder of Combat Stress. Combat stress is a short-term affliction caused by the traumatic effects of war. The historical perspective of combat stress were considered. The effects of combat stress on physical, emotional, mental and psychological parameters were analyzed. The ways of medical and psychological treatment were also mentioned. The cost of war weighs tremendously high, especially if one considers the individual human suffering and not just the loss of government property. When soldiers find themselves in the extraordinary and life threatening conditions, there is a high percent of combat and operational stress from which they may suffer. Combat stress compromises the service-member's emotional, mental and behavioral well-being beyond the lines of the battlefield. Combat stress is a neurological disorder caused by the traumatic effects and accompanied by “melancholy, insomnia, weakness, loss of appetite, and anxiety” (Weaver & Steward, 1988, p3). It is relevant to mention that combat stress is not a continuous disorder but a short-term affliction; and in this case, should be differed from the post-traumatic stress disorder which is long-term and brings more serious consequences. Among the general symptoms of the combat stress are exhaustion, fatigue, fear, uncertainty, and the inability to concentrate as if the person is switched off from the world....

Measures to Reduce the Balance of Payments Deficit

...meant by the term Balance of Payments Deficit on the Current Account and Explain the Measures that could be taken to Reduce this Deficit The balance of payments records all financial tractions made with foreigners over a period time made between consumers, businesses and the government. The current account of the balance of payments compromises the balance of trade in goods and services plus net investment incomes from overseas assets and net transfers. In 2012, the UK’s current account balance of payments deficit was £59.8 billion. The government is always attempting to introduce measures in order to reduce the balance of payments deficit in order to have a balance of payments surplus where exports are greater than imports. One way the government could take measures in order to decrease the deficit is by lowing the exchange rate. A depreciation in the exchange rate of sterling could help to boost the overseas demand for UK exports because as a result goods from British would be cheaper and the UK export cheaply in international markets. Therefore, Exports would increase but also this would have an effect on imports for UK consumers. As the exchange rate lowers, imported goods are more expensive to UK consumers and goods become relatively more expensive - leading to a slowdown in imported goods. However, these consequences depend on the elasticity of demand. Another way in order to reduce the balance of payments deficit is to focus more on longer term improvements in......

...Ways to Reduce Stress Stress is a common diseases will effect to some people who working and studying. The failure assignments and some projects will make a person become stress easily and make them scold others who talk to them or disturb them that time. Furthermore, stress can cause dangerous for the health and depression to our life. At same time, there many people trying to reduce stress through various good activities such as go a walk with friends, outing with family, reading books, sharing problems with others, and so on (Waehner.P 2015). In my opinions, the best three ways to reduce stress are alter the stressful situation, make time for fun and relaxation, and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Firstly, one of the best way to reduce the stress is to figure out what to do to alter the stressful situation. Besides that, expression their feelings instead of bottling them up. Some people will not share their problems to others easily, that also make us become stress because putting the problems inside of our mind it will be not solve. For instance, if have any problems or sad feelings inside us, we must trying to share with parents or friends (University Health Center, n.d).

What Can Be Done to Combat Stress?

...Stress and stress-related illness seem to be unavoidable in the life most people lead nowadays. For many years now, it has been recognized that increasing levels of stress in the workplace not only increases the risk of disease but also reduces people’s ability to respond flexibly to the demands of their job. This stress results from a variety of aspects of our modern life; there are, however, several things that can be done to reduce the problems caused by stress. The modern world is constantly developing and at a very high speed. This means that there is constant change and people need to update their skills. Job security is no longer guaranteed and this can cause a great deal of stress. In the past, most people were guaranteed a job for life, but this is no longer true. In fact, many people may have to change career more than once in their life time. In Japan, for example, the restructuring of many businesses in the last ten years led to a reduction in the number of middle managers. This was very stressful and led to an alarming number of suicides. Another contributory factor is population growth. This puts more pressure on our environment. For example, many calamities like soil erosion, landslide, and drought are caused through deforestation and various types of pollution have caused the human problems. Moreover, the roads and public transport become more crowded. As a result, there are longer lines for everyday activities and very crucial services like shopping and...
