Deployments and long-term separations are difficult on military families. Our Hug-A-Hero Dolls are crucial for children and parents, but they are best used as part of an overall plan for getting through difficult separations. Each family has unique and creative ways of coping. This section of our website provides the opportunity to share and learn about what separation ideas and tips work best for your family. Please post comments, stories, ideas or tips here to help others that may need support in coping with a deployment.
We encourage you to submit your own deployment tip by going to our Contact Us page, in the subject drop down option, select (To submit a Deployment Tip) and we will be sure to post it here for you. Help other families just like yours who are looking for ways to get through a deployment or any period of separation while a parent is away.
