The U.S. has been involved in "conflicts" for more than 20 years. Such "conflicts" include:

- Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)
- Other operations in support of the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT)
Because of these "conflicts", there has been an increased awareness of military and their family members left behind in the communities of the United States.
