They used two methods assessment. The post deployment health assessment and post deployment health reassessment. The post deployment health assessment were the military personnel completed the questioner about their present health status. The post deployment health reassessment question about their related exposure to their illness, which produce risks factor of combat stress and environ mental hazards. The participants were 45, and 27 have history of enduring mTBI symptoms while 18 have no history of mBTI. The question were based on the brief trauma brain injury screen (Schwab et al., 2007).

In table 2 & 3, the compares of categorical suicidal risk factors shows the variables. The reliability and the validity should be tested before the interview.
