DRRI-2 Section: O
Survey Label: "Postdeployment Support"
The extent to which family, friends, and individuals within the community provide emotional sustenance and instrumental assistance. Emotional sustenance refers to the extent to which others provide the individual with understanding, companionship, a sense of belonging, and positive self-regard (e.g., making the individual feel proud of his or her service, offering advice when needed). Instrumental assistance refers to the extent to which the individual receives tangible aid, such as help to accomplish tasks and material assistance or resources (e.g., helping the individual with daily chores, lending the individual money).
