Military Group Offers Support to Families of Deployed Soldiers

Troops from the Army's 3rd Infantry Division, based at Fort Stewart in Georgia, were redeployed to Iraq early this year. To help the families left behind, the military offers its Family Readiness Group, or FRG. While some say these groups are a great support, others complain that they offer little more than window dressing by the military.
