"Service-Connected Disability and the Veteran Mortality Disadvantage," co-authored by Maxwell sociologists Scott Landes, Andrew London and Janet Wilmoth, was published in Armed Forces & Society. Their results indicate that service-connected disability status accounts for some variation in, and may have a cumulative effect on, the veteran mortality disadvantage. Future research should account for service-connected disability status when studying veteran–nonveteran mortality differentials. 06/28/21
