dc.description.abstract During recent years, Marines, along with the other Services, have experienced a heightened operational tempo where deployments are more frequent with limited time at home. The stressors of deployment on the non-deployed spouse can not only affect her own health and well-being, but also the health and well-being of her children and the deployed service member. Online social support through weak tie networks can serve as a buffer against these deployment stressors.
