( - On Sunday, The Washington Post published its first article in a new series called After the Wars, reporting on a major new survey from the WashingtonPost/Kaiser Family Foundation Survey Project.  The poll and reporting project explores the views and experiences of U.S. military veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The survey and The Washington Post's reporting, graphics and videography amplify its results, and give voice to our soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. They report great pride in their service (almost nine in ten say they would do it again knowing what they know now), but also great difficulty making the transition back to civilian life, including facing serious economic, and physical and mental health challenges. Half know a service member who has attempted or committed suicide. The survey also examined attitudes towards the government and the military and views on women serving in combat roles.

This survey is the 27th in a series of surveys dating back to 1995 conducted as part of The Washington Post/Kaiser Family Foundation Survey Project. All surveys in the series are designed and analyzed jointly by survey researchers at Kaiser and The Washington Post.

Full survey results are available here.
