'The Homefront'
(DVD / NR / 2015 / PBS)

Overview: More than two million men and women serve in America s all-volunteer military force, and another three million are their husbands, wives, sons, and daughters. With unprecedented access and filmed over 14 months, 'The Homefront' creates a series of intimate portraits following families through the difficulties of deployment, the joys of homecoming, and the challenges of reintegrating as a family after many months apart.

Recommended viewing for everyone, 'The Homefront' reveals to us that there are more than two million men and women who serve in America's all-volunteer military force; and another three million are their husbands, wives, sons, and daughters. With unprecedented access and filmed over 14 months, 'The Homefront' creates a series of intimate portraits--following families through the difficulties of deployment, the joys of homecoming, and the challenges of reintegrating as a family after many months apart.

In 'The Homefront', viewers meet a cross-section of America's military community: Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen, some in the active duty force, and some in the National Guard and Reserve. Representing many ranks, and drawn from across the country, these families illustrate what it means to serve.

This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Feature of:
