The Robert E. Mitchell Center for Prisoner of War Studies, located in Pensacola, Florida, is a unique institution that currently holds the only existing longitudinal study of the long term medical and psychological effects of posttraumatic stress relating to the Prisoner of War (POW) experience. U.S. Navy/Marine Corps, U. S. Air Force, and U. S. Army Repatriated Prisoners of War held prisoner during Vietnam, from Operation Desert Storm (1991), and those held in Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003) are eligible to participate in this ongoing study.
Much of the medical and psychological history of repatriated soldiers is stored in a secure database repository which, with their permission, can be used for research purposes. Although the Mitchell Center does receive internal (Department of Defense [DoD]) support to conduct the annual medical evaluations, it does not, however, routinely receive direct DoD support for conducting research. Therefore, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit foundation, incorporated in the state of Florida, was established so that outside contributors (non-DoD) could financially support the Mitchell Center’s research costs. These charitable donations will help identify health risks of internment for our nation’s repatriated heroes, application for future members of the armed forces, as well as general health trends in aging populations.
