Veterans of recent wars are enrolling in colleges and universities at high rates. Among them are veterans who identify as transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC). As a result of societal stigma and discrimination, TGNC student veterans may have health needs that differ from the general population. This study utilized data from a national sample to examine the physical health and mental health factors of TGNC student service members and veterans. Results indicate that TGNC student service members and veterans self-reported significantly higher rates of bronchitis and depression with unprescribed pain killer use when compared with cisgender student veterans. Discussion of the results of this study are presented to inform health and prevention services for TGNC student service members and veterans on college and university campuses.
