After our church meetings ended today we went to the stake's Saint's at War meeting. The stake is trying to get the service members to come and participate in a forum designed to give them opportunities to talk about their experiences with others who have had the same or similar experiences to be able to help them work through the tough things they have witnessed. We have had brethren attend who served clear back in WWII and all the wars since then to help these new soldiers work through their problems. We have tried to expand this to include the wives to help them support each other during their husband's absence. At some point in time we will be teaching the Church's resiliency program to aid all military and their families cope with deployment issues.
