AAP releases report on challenges faced by military children
Having a parent deployed overseas is always tough on children, but it can be especially difficult during the holidays. To help reduce the challenges, a group of sponsors and community leaders in North Carolina came together to treat 5,500 military families to a special viewing of Disney on Ice's "Dare to Dream" show, The Fayetteville Observer reports.
Among those in attendance were Jennifer Trapp and her three sons. Her husband is in the middle of his fifth deployment and although he was home for Christmas last year, it has been a rare occasion for much of the last decade. She says that the gesture is indicative of the growing concern people show for military families.
"This shows the Army has really taken a step along with other civilian organizations to reach out to the families that are going through these hard times," she told the newspaper.
Although there are still thousands of troops serving in Afghanistan, many soldiers stationed in Iraq will be home for the holidays after the war officially ended on Thursday.
