Separated by War: The Homecoming
In the conclusion of this up-close and personal mini-doc about a military family, Marine Staff Sgt. Tim Gallagher represents the new face of America’s military — service members with children. Today, over 40 % have at least one child under 18. Wife Tammy Gallagher was left to care for three young children while Tim deployed for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Producer Angela Shelley brought the “Separated by War” concept to renowned L.A. Times columnist Steve Lopez who’d never been an on-air TV reporter. Trusting Shelley with the heavy lifting, the program won Emmys for the entire production team.
