  1. Note. Family Study weights are used in all models [24]. All social and military support independent variables are multi-category ordinal variables that are used as continuous measures in the models. The odds ratio reported for each of these variables corresponds to a 1-unit increase in the independent variable. The numbers in parentheses refer to the scoring of the independent variables (see Table 2 for details). Significant effects at the P < .05 value are bolded
