Dealing with Death in the Military

Hosted by

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.
