Military families deserve to be revered for the sacrifices they make while serving our country. In times of war and peace their sacrifices are significant and innumerable.
When caring for a child and serving in the military, parents on the journey of care experience all of the challenges civilian parents on the same journey experience. You can read more about these challenges in our first blog post The Quiet Warrior Next Door.
However, many military veterans confront these challenges while managing through greater complexity and intensity. Deployments, pre-existing post-traumatic stress disorder, distance from family and other support due to service related relocations are just a few among a many other complications that can make the journey of care even more treacherous.
