From Tents to Sheets: An Analysis of the CF Experience with Third Location Decompression after Deployment

The value of decompression has been confirmed by the CF experience in Guam after Operation Athena, as well as experiences in the Netherlands and Australia. More research and study is necessary however, particularly with respect to the both short and long term impacts and benefits. In the long term, it is possible that a relationship between decompression and the risk of the development of operational stress injuries will become clearer. Whether any clear link is established or not, it is fair to say now that, at minimum, there is clearly a demonstrable short term, immediate benefit.
