It’s no secret that returning combat veterans have an enormous amount of obstacles to face to re-integrate into civilian society, and while things have improved, it’s not nearly enough. In Homefront 911: How Families of Veterans Are Wounded by Our Wars, author Stacy Bannerman examines some of the key components in paving the way for our combat veterans to make the transition easier, including proposed national solutions to provide better care for returning vets and their families, the need to establish House and Senate Veterans affairs subcommittees, and one often overlooked aspect in the added stress that overwhelms caregivers coupled with combat trauma and how it inversely affects the children and grandchildren of both the combat vets and caregivers. Stacy is a military family advocate who has addressed congressional committees. Her husband served in Iraq.
