Luke in Veteran Kids talks about his experience
with a parent in the military
Veteran Children is a film project that brings attention to the struggles, sacrifices and strengths of military children and families. In our half-hour documentary Veteran Children: When Parents Go To War we share the fears, grief, loneliness, trauma and resilience when parents deploy to wars and conflict zones. The profound impacts on family life and mental health are largely untold stories. We encourage civilians to engage with the military community and we advocate for on-going support services for military families and children.
“Military children serve alongside with their parents and one of their disadvantages is that they don’t have any uniforms. So we don’t even see their service. But military children serve alongside.”
