  1. a Full models were adjusted for all variables: sex, birth year, education, race/ethnicity, baseline smoking status, history of potential alcohol dependence, body mass index, baseline MCS and PCS, combat deployment, pay grade, service component, service branch, occupation
  2. b Marital status assessed from baseline to first follow-up, where those who were “recently divorced” were married at their baseline survey and got divorced before their follow-up survey. The reference category is > 2 years since divorce
  3. c In outcomes without a reference indication, the reference category is “No”
  4. d Posttraumatic stress disorder is defined using the PTSD checklist-civilian version, specific criteria with a cutoff of 50
  5. e Assessed using the Patient Health Questionnaire
  6. f Binge drinking is defined as reporting five or more drinks per occasion for men or four or more drinks per occasion for women on at least 1 day during the past year
  7. g Extreme weight loss (≥10 % loss), moderate weight loss (between 3 % and 10 % loss), stable weight (within ± 3 %), moderate weight gain (between 3 % and 10 % gain), and extreme weight gain (≥10 % gain)
  8. h Physical component summary score are obtained from the Short Form-36 Question Health Survey for Veterans (SF-36 V)
  9. i Deployment was assessed from baseline until the follow-up for those in the “stayed married” and assessed until 3 years after divorce event for the “recently divorced” population
  10. j Adjusted Odds Ratio was found to be statistically significant
