The Secret Weapon

from Strategy Page

The Internet has played a major role in improving morale for troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other distant places where the war on terror is being fought.

It's hard to measure the impact, but commanders have learned, over the last eight years, that access to the Internet improves the attitudes of troops, and reduces discipline and morale problems. This apparently plays a role in higher re-enlistment (and enlistment) rates, and fewer problems with combat fatigue (which can also be made worse by lack of contact with friends and family back home.)
