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.
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.
The military lifestyle is one that most Americans will never experience. But as The Homefront makes clear, now more than ever it is important to understand these families and their story. This revealing two-hour documentary presented by Bob Woodruff, tells stories of pride and patriotism, sacrifice, and resilience.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
