520 2  "The hallmarks of America's War on Terror have been 
       repeated long deployments and a high percentage of troops 
       returning with psychological problems. Family members of 
       combat veterans are at a higher risk of potentially lethal
       domestic violence than almost any other demographic; it's 
       estimated that one in four children of active-duty service
       members have symptoms of depression; and nearly one 
       million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan require increased
       care due to physical or psychological trauma. But, despite
       these staggering trends, civilian America has not been 
       mobilized to take care of the families left behind; the 
       American homefront, which traditionally has been rallied 
       to support the nation's war efforts, has disappeared. In 
       Homefront 911 Stacy Bannerman, a nationally-recognized 
       advocate for military families, provides an insider's view
       of how more than a decade of war has contributed to the 
       emerging crisis we are experiencing in today's military 
       and veteran families as they battle with overwhelmed VA 
       offices, a public they feel doesn't understand their 
       sacrifices, and a nation that still isn't fully prepared 
       to help those who have given so much. Bannerman, whose 
       husband served in Iraq, describes how extended deployments
       cause cumulative, long-lasting strain on families who may 
       not see their parent, child, or spouse for months on end. 
       She goes on to share the tools she and others have found 
       to begin to heal their families, and advocates policies 
       for advancing programs, services, and civilian support, 
       all to help repair the broken agreement that the nation 
       will care for its returning soldiers and their families"--
