Laura Seitz, Deseret News
After a decade of foreign wars, thousands of American families that have already sacrificed by sending a spouse, or parent or child into combat are learning that war is always brought home. Oklahoma-based therapist Cynde Collins-Clark, the mother of a disabled veteran, has turned her insight and expertise into a powerfully simple and effective resource for families of veterans, Veterans' Families United Foundation (veteransfamiliesunited.org). It is a web-based all-volunteer initiative that connects veterans and their families to professionally vetted information and resources that can help families that have been separated because of war to begin the challenging but hopeful journey of reintegration and healing.
