About the event:Producers Susan Hackley and Martha Jackson will show their new half hour documentary film, Veteran Children: When Parents Go To War, and discuss with the audience why they made the film, what they have learned about bridging the military-civilian divide, and how America’s military families and children are significantly affected by war. The film uniquely highlights the voices of children who describe their loneliness, fears, and struggles as well as how they cope and demonstrate remarkable strengths. While recognizing that the impact of war is profound and often devastating on the children of war-torn Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, the filmmakers chose to focus on Americans to promote understanding of the impacts of war on Americans who serve and their families, and to help connect our military and civilian communities.
