WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2010 Just as spouses must prepare for their servicemembers’ reintegration after a year-long deployment, children also need help preparing for mom or dad’s return.
"Linda Liberty" (aka actress Linda Moseley) talks with Sgt. Rocky during a performance of "Sgt. Rocky's Neighborhood," a puppet show designed to help children deal with post-deployment and reintegration issues, Oct. 28, 2010. U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Robert Schaffner.

Rocky’s Neighborhood,” which prepares children for deployment, to a new level to help them cope with homecomings, too. Read about this great program in “Reintegration: ACS Puppet Program Prepares Children for Homecoming.”
