Veteran Children Project

Co-producers Susan Hackley and Martha Jackson, two Brookline mothers whose sons went to war, will present their half-hour documentary film Veteran Children: When Parents Go To War, which premiered on Indiana Public Television last spring. The film features American children talking about what it’s like to have a mother or father serve in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Syria. More than 2.7 million American children have a parent who has served in one of these wars. What is the impact on them? What is the impact on all of our children of nearly two decades of constant war? This timely film has been shown multiple times to great acclaim, and was presented at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans on Veterans Day.
