Resilience Under Stress Study (RUSS)


This research is made possible by the COVID-19 Military Support Initiative (CMSI), presented by Booz Allen Hamilton, and in partnership with USAA and the Institute for Veteran and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University.

Uncertain Times

We know military families are routinely under stress through deployments and separations, and are familiar with uncertainty. The COVID-19 crisis is a universal stressor that has impacted all Americans – military, veteran, and civilian – simultaneously. We want to know how military and veteran families are using their resilience to cope during these uncertain times.


We know your time is valuable, and we don't take it for granted. As a study incentive, we will randomly select 5 people to win a $100 gift card!
