Recently, we received a grant from our university to offer $120 in gift cards to military couples who complete an online survey once per month during the first three months following reunion. The surveys take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete, and they ask about people's communication patterns now that they are reunited. The results will provide important information to help couples have more satisfying relationships.

Are any units in your area scheduled to return home from deployment during the next 5 months (i.e., by mid-summer of 2011)? If so, we would appreciate your help in advertising our study when the service members return home. We would love to be able to distribute gift cards to families in your area.

Please reply to this message to let us know (a) whether any units will be returning home by mid-summer, and (b) their expected date of arrival. If you are willing to spread the word, we will send you an email text that you can forward to military couples (around the time that the unit is expected home).

Thanks again for supporting military families!
