Impact of War

Since the wars began in Iraq and Aghanistan an estimated two-million American children have had at least one parent deployed. Routines have to be adjusted and often one parent has to fill the shoes of two. But what happens when both parents deploy....more than once? Next weekend our Impact of War series concludes with a report on one family with a very creative solution.

Have your kids been affected by a parent's deployment? Let us know.
