Helping Military Families: "A Handbook for Family & Friends of Service Members Before, During and After Deployment"

More than 1.6 million men and women have served in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001. Almost half of these heroes are married, and almost half have children - most of whom are five years and younger. Our service members make great sacrifices overseas, but so do the friends, families and loved ones they leave behind.

A new one-of-a-kind resource handbook and video is being made available to servicemembers’ families and friends, courtesy of an independent film production company, Vulcan Productions, owned by philanthropist Paul G. Allen. The handbook and video aim to help families and friends prepare for the emotional challenges encountered before, during and after deployment

Together in partnership with the representatives from the U.S. military, leading researchers and clinicians and veteran service organizations from around the country, Paul G. Allen's Vulcan Productions is honored to release a new multimedia resource to serve these military families: "A Handbook for Family & Friends of Service Members Before, During and After Deployment"
