Combat Stress Magazine

Combat Stress magazine is written with our military service men and women and their families in mind. We want all of our guests and members to find contentment in their lives by learning about stress management and finding what works best for each of them. Stress is unavoidable and comes in many shapes and sizes. Being in a state of peaceful happiness may seem like a very lofty goal. Serving in the military brings unique challenges, without adding the harmful mental and physical effects of serving during war time. AIS is dedicated to helping you and your family cope with and heal your mind and body from the stress associated with military life.
