This is not a response to the recent heated discussion, rather I am actually searching for persons interested and involved in substantial research on social networks / military culture or know about such work.
I am researching into the change of personal networks at the transition from military to civilian life. I want to get a grips on how this institutional transition and the related 'cultural transition' plays out in social networks, relationships and well-being. To do this, I conduct face-to-face interviews with service personnel and their partners immediately before and again a couple of months after the transition. I collect data on their joint networks, relationships, experiences, health, well-being, ... study web-page: http://people.pwf.cam.ac.uk/ae272/Site/RESEARCH_PROJECT.html
If you know about related research or if you are interested in similar research, please get in contact with me. Any recommendations for literature or hints to research groups/persons working on similar matters would be highly appreciated. I am happy to gather the info and send it back to those that asking for it.
My project is an amendment to an ongoing research at the Kings Centre for Military Health Research, King's College London. It focuses on the health and well-being of UK Armed Forces members and has some questions on social networks in their follow up study of over 12,000 veterans and service leavers. If anyone is interested or want to know more about this, please get in contact.
