A collection of Web resources for parents in the military and their children, with support, information, and resources.
» Having a parent (or both parents) in the military has the challenges of frequent relocations, interrupted education (and health care), and often the lack of a strong peer group. In addition, the duress parents face when sent to a combat area and the chances that a parent may return with serious injury, or not come back at all, can increase the stress in the child's already unsteady environment. The following links impart some useful information for you and your patients who are children of military families.
