Background and Aim: The military structure of military occupations in comparison with civilian occupations puts employees in a variety of stressful situations related to the work, family, and organizational environment. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and stressful sources of militarism in a group of military personnel.
Methods: The present research method was descriptive with a cross-sectional design. The sample studied in this study was 300 active military personnel who were selected by the available sampling method. The instrument used in this study was the scale of Azad and Nedaei's (2020) Military Stress Factors Scale. The research questions were answered through statistical methods of frequency distribution, mean and standard deviation, and t-test.
Results: The results showed that 61.3% of employees are moderately stressed and 19% of them are exposed to severe stress. Also, the result of the t-test indicates a significant difference between the mean stress of the sample group and the mean of the population.
Conclusion: Significant military stressors are ongoing among employees that endanger their mental health. Systematic interventions should be provided to prevent the aggravation of stressors and reduce stress among employees.
Keywords: Military personnel, Militarism, Stressors.
