The article offers an interpretation of the findings of the Fort Bragg Demonstration Project evaluation that differs in many important ways from the evaluation results provided in this special issue of the Journal of Mental Health Administration and in a book published by the evaluators. It points out problems associated with the program theory used by the evaluation team to illustrate how the intended intervention is expected to lead to the major outcomes.
