Local Woman to Take Voices of Vets to D.C.

"We want to help end the epidemic of disconnection between civilian and military families,"

War monologues will be performed at the Capitol
September 29, 2011 - The largely silent voices of military families after 10 years of war will be heard loud and clear this fall in Washington, D.C., thanks to the efforts of a Medford woman.

Stacy Bannerman is the producer and director of "Homefront 911: Military Family Monologues," which will be performed beginning at noon Nov. 17 in the United States Capitol Visitors Center Congressional Auditorium.

She is the author of many of the monologues that will be read by military family members.

"We want to help end the epidemic of disconnection between civilian and military families," said Bannerman, founder of The Sanctuary for Veterans & Families, a nonprofit organization that provides advocacy, support and sanctuary weekends for women veterans, wives of veterans and their loved ones.

"We want to raise the awareness of the impact a decade of war has had on these military families," she said. "We've heard a lot about the stress and strain muliple deployments have on troops, but people need to realize the stress on families is at a rate approaching those of our service members." read more>>>

No Revenues = Still No Sacrifice = That's Called 'Support' For The Troops = DeJa-Vu all over again, Shared Sacrifice My A**!!
As those war profiteers who ordered are still profiteering and not only on books, their wealthy class does as well, directly or indirectly, and none are taxed to boot!
No Sacrifice now a decade plus long added to the previous decades!!
