  1. RS – rating scale (normalized to a 0.0–1.0 scale); TTO – time tradeoff; SG – standard gamble; WTP – willingness to pay. * All comparisons of values for the veteran and the non-veteran were not significantly different at the p < 0.05 level. † The mean WTP for the veteran group was not calculable due to 2 "unlimited" amount responses.
