This week, we bring you Breaking Ground: Military Children. During more than a decade of war, tens of thousands of military children have watched and waited as a parent was deployed to conflict zones overseas.
Now, with the Department of Defense confronting budget cuts, these children face an uncertain future. What will they do if the military chooses to shut down their schools? Will they have the support they need as their parents reintegrate into civilian life? What can we learn from these children, and what duty do we as a society owe them?
This August, Public Radio Presents brings you the spring series of State of the Re:Union with host Al Letson. Every episode is like a love letter to the country -- telling the story of America, one community at a time.
