Abstract

Aspects of the Vietnam experience which may have affected the health of veterans may not have been constant throughout the Vietnam Conflict or between locations where veterans served in Vietnam. Subsequent mortality of 19,205 Australian National Service veterans of the Vietnam Conflict was examined to determine if differences in the health of veterans varied by military phase of the Conflict or by location of service in Vietnam. For all causes of death combined, there was no statistically significant variation in death rates either between the phases of the Conflict or between locations of service in Vietnam.
