Abstract

Military children make tremendous sacrifices in support of a parent(s) military service. More than two million children have a parent who is serving or has served in the Armed Forces. Research shows that military-connected children are at higher risk of physical, psychological, and behavioral health issues. While "resilient" is the word used to describe most military children, it is important to recognize the stresses/stressors of military life- that military children serve too-to support and care for them.
