MASSACHUSETTS -- Military families in Massachusetts can turn to a new website to help children adjust to a parent's deployment. The website is aimed at giving advice to military parents, and helping children cope with stress.
It's linked to the Home Base program. Home Base is a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital and the Boston Red Sox Foundation that helps veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan recover from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
Program officials say there are about 13,000 children in Massachusetts with connections to the military.
