They Were Families:

How War Comes Home

“In this era of the Global War On Terror, where America has been at war for well over a decade, military families, who comprise such a small percentage of the American population, bear the brunt of war and its unique hardships of deployment, separation, reintegration, and trauma. Through extensive research, professional expertise, and a compassionate approach, Dr. Mines offers military families a guide to help them navigate the unique hardships of war and its aftermath, with a particular emphasis on children. But this guide is not just for military families but for all of us, as it serves to broaden our understanding of and our empathy for military affiliated members of our community family.”
