Deployment is the process of rotating forces into and out of an operational area.[1] All deployments, even those that do not involve combat, are significant events in service members’ lives and can affect not only those who deploy but also their families. Deployment experiences, including exposure to chemical, physical and environmental hazards in some regions, have the potential for causing immediate and long-term effects on both physical and mental health.

This section provides information and guidance for healthcare providers and service members regarding the health-related aspects of the deployment process. It also provides information on deployment resources for service members and their families.
