Military service, especially during war, places service members at high risk for grief and loss experiences. For most, grief is a normal and transitory process of adapting to the loss. For some individuals, grief can be accompanied by significant functional impairment requiring treatment. Particular modes of death (i.e. violence, suicide) and other relevant factors place survivors at high risk for complicated grief. Current treatments for complicated grief are described and the role of meaning-making and spirituality in the recovery process is explored.
