Chapter 2:

A New Reality: Impact of the

Global War on Terrorism

Operation: Military Kids

Ready, Set, Go! Training

slide2

Impact of the Global War on Terrorism

• Has changed the face of military service for those in the National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve

• Mobilization and deployment at record high levels

• Different needs than traditional military families

• Primary occupation is not one of “Soldier” and families don’t consider themselves “military families”

• Geographically dispersed from others in the same circumstances (not necessarily located near a military installation)

• Family identity changes from “civilian” to “military” with one letter or phone call

slide3

Unique Issues for Children/Youth in National

Guard and U. S. Army Reserve Families:

• Lack of community awareness of and support for family needs

• Lack of educator preparedness to recognize and meet needs of children/youth of deployed members

• Possible transition from one school to another

• Social/emotional/behavioral reactions may impact youths’ future

• Accessibility and affordability of childcare

• Availability and affordability of after-school programs and youth activities; children home alone

• Frequently unaware of resources to help parents and children cope

• Difficulty understanding and dealing with media

• Deployment cycle—disrupts family before, during, and after...and is repeated

slide4

Identified Issues for Children/Youth in National

Guard and U.S. Army Reserve Families:

• Geographically dispersed families and lack of connection with other youth and families in similar situation

• Child separation/anxiety issues regarding safety of deployed parent

• Deployed parent absent for significant events

• Less parental involvement from parent at home

• Limited opportunities for youth to attend extracurricular activities

• Teens having increased care of home and younger siblings

• Behavioral changes, peer pressure, lower self-esteem

• Communication with deployed parent

• Need to live with extended family

• Changes in financial resources
