In this documentary shot at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa during a troop deployment to Afghanistan, children and teens talk about the particular circumstances of having soldiers as parents.

Directed by Claire Corriveau, Children of Soldiers lifts the veil on a reality shared by thousands of young Canadians, and on the difficulty of finding a balance between loyalty to the troops and staying true to themselves.

    Thanks for a very good view of the family's side. I think as soldiers we all know that the problems are there, unfortunately many feel helpless. We see what is happening and don't know what to do about it. Thank God for strong wives and stronger kids but good family services will always be needed and so must be supported.
