The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the effects of deployments on Latino military families and the services that are provided while the service member is deployed. The sample included 16 Latina military spouses. A face-to-face interview was completed from which common themes were explored. A literature review was conducted in order to examine what effects deployment has on military families, Latinos serving in the military and Latino cultural values. Several common themes from participant interviews coincided with the literature review. However the importance of family support in Latino families was prevalent among the findings. Implications for social work collaboration with agencies that provide services to Latino military families are also discussed.
