Description: When a military family member needs extra support, it can mean big adjustments for everyone in the family. Rosita and her friend, Rocío, discuss how to embrace this unique situation with a sense of family togetherness.
This program is powered in part by Wounded Warrior Project® to honor and empower post-9/11 injured service members, veterans, and their families.
