Stacy Bannerman, M.S., is the author of HOMEFRONT 911: How Families of Veterans Are Wounded by Our Wars (2015) and WHEN THE WAR CAME HOME: The Inside Story of Reservists and the Families They Leave Behind (2006). Stacy has testified before several Congressional committees, including the House Appropriations Sub-Committee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs, a House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee, and the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel. Ms. Bannerman authored OR H.B. 3391, and independently secured its unanimous passage, establishing the Military Family Task Force in Oregon, believed to be the first in the nation. She also singlehandedly spearheaded state and national legislative campaigns for military family leave, resulting in the passage of Oregon's H.B. 2744, and the introduction of the federal Military Family Leave Act of 2009. At the request of the OR Department of Justice, she wrote the language identifying partners of combat veterans as an at-risk, underserved population under the STOP/VAWA 2014-2016 grant program implementation plan, the first time that demographic has been prioritized by a State DOJ. Stacy received the Patriotic Employer Award and the Above & Beyond Award from the Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve in 2009
