The Command Post

The Command Post

While Canada was in lockdown, Together We Stand created The Command Post, a regular webcast series featuring military family members as guests. The intention was to bring a sense of kinship back to those who were struggling through the current global pandemic, while also allowing military families to see themselves accurately reflected within their diverse realities. This series brings the military family community together, discussing prominent themes such as grief, raising children in the military, reintegration, operational stress injuries and posting season.
