About the Books
In Homefront 911, Stacy Bannerman, a nationally recognized advocate for military families who has testified before Congress, provides an insider's view of an emerging crisis in today's military families. Combining her own experiences with those of other caregivers, she describes the prolonged strain on the parents, children, and spouses of veterans 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. She shares with readers the tools she and others have found to heal, and she advocates policies and ways to help repair the broken agreement that the nation will care for its returning soldiers and their families.
When the War Came Home chronicles the impact of operationalizing the forces that were intended to function as strategic reserves, and provides a personal account of Stacy's home front experience as she protests a war that her husband is fighting. At the heart of this powerful story of service, sacrifice, and speaking out is the question: What constitutes support for the troops, and when does it begin - before war is declared, during deployment, or after they come home?
