One Nation, Under God

November Remembered for Veterans Day

1996 marked the first observance of National Veteran and Military Families Month acknowledging the great sacrifices military families make to ensure the nation's freedom. Long separations, at times, both parents are enlisted; there are frequent moves with at times unfavorable living conditions. Families embody strength, resilience, and courage no matter where they live and how long the separation.

Families experience trauma, especially young children who at times are unable to express their feelings. Help is also given to military families in transition into the civilian life.
