Breaking Ground: Military Children
Our forthcoming project explores the lives of our nation’s military children. During more than a decade of war, tens of thousands of these children have watched and waited as a parent was deployed to conflict zones overseas.
Now, with the Department of Defense confronting budget cuts, these children face an uncertain future. What will they do if the military chooses to shut down their schools? Will they have the support they need as their parents reintegrate into civilian life? What can we learn from these children, and what duty do we as a society owe them?
