The Home Front
The 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center has passed. For the majority of the past decade the United States has been at war. As time went on, news of these wars vanished from the front-page headlines eclipsed by pressing issues on the home front. This series, The Home Front, considers life on the home front while referencing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There is a division between the soldiers in the military who are fighting and their families and those whose lives remain relatively untouched by the impact of war. We have yet to realize fully the impact of soldiers returning home from a combat zone as they reintegrate back into society. As they need our help, compassion and understanding, we will no longer be able to keep the sharp delineation between home front and war front.
