At a film screening at Harvard Law School on June 5, producers Susan Hackley (right) and Martha Jackson (left) introduced their new documentary film, Veteran Children: When Parents Go To War to friends, colleagues, and family. The film shows how children are affected by a parent's deployment to war in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Syria. More than two million military children have a parent who has served in our wars since 9/11. Often these children struggle alone with their fears and anxieties. We can all support these children and families and help bridge the divide between military and civilians in our country. Please let us know if you want to show this important film at your place of work or worship, a veterans group, a high school or university, or in your community.
