Given recent history of international conflict and violence, the health and well-being of those who have served the military of any country world-wide has become a major challenge that influences the well-being of families, communities and nations. This issue of ANS includes four articles that address the health of veterans and their families, and a guest editorial that provides information about the U.S. military research programs that are addressing these significant challenges. In addition, this issue includes a number of "General Topic" articles that extend the discourse in a number of areas of important nursing scholarship.
