7. Military Members, Veterans and Families

This section has resources that may be of particular interest to families where one or more family members serves in the military. Members of the military have to deal with very specific issues that others do not, such as: preparing for deployment; dealing with loved ones being away on deployment, as well as their eventual return; stress from frequent moves; the very real risk of losing a loved one in the line of duty. And in addition to that, military families must also cope with all the usual stresses that any other families face.
