If you missed Bob Woodruff hosting 'The Homefront' on PBS Memorial Day, you can now watch it online. #milfams  
More than two million men and women serve in America’s all-volunteer military force, and another three million are their husbands, wives, sons and daughters. The Homefront uses unprecedented access to soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, to create a series of intimate portraits of America's military families. The revealing two-hour documentary special tells stories of pride and patriotism, sacrifice and resilience.

Start your Memorial Day weekend off here, Friday night on PBS.
On January 7, 2015, The Lincoln Awards honored its ten inaugural recipients with a special concert at the Kennedy Center. The Lincoln Awards partnered with nearly fifty veteran and government organizations to distribute free tickets to active-duty service members, veterans and wounded warriors, along with their caregivers and family members.

Our take on 'Ashley's War' and the importance stories like it have on how we see female veterans.
By learning the stories of women who have served, we gain a better understanding of their needs as they return home.

Helping Heroes on the Homefront
Introduction
Since September 11, 2001, 2.5 million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.  Now, they’re coming home.

Yet even after they return to the love and support of their families and communities, many will struggle.   Physical and hidden injuries are challenging on their own.  But sometimes, these injuries can lead to a cascade of other trouble — unemployment, depression, substance abuse, even suicide.

Our mission is to ensure injured veterans and their families are thriving long after they return home.  That’s why we find and fund innovative programs in communities where veterans, their families and caregivers live and work.  That’s how we tackle the problems that can prevent our veterans from fulfilling their dreams for the next chapter of their lives.
