Dealing with Death in the Military When a soldier is killed, his or her family loses more than a loved one. It's necessary to move off the base, losing ties with friends, school-mates and other connections based on life in the military. Bonnie Carroll, who served in the Reagan White House, lost her husband in 1992. He was a commanding general who died in action during the first Gulf War. Her own difficulties in dealing with that experience led her to form TAPS , the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, to provide support for the families of fallen troops.
