Life as a mother can be difficult. Life as a mother who is returning home from an extended deployment however, can feel insurmountable. In her upcoming film Fort Bliss, Michelle Monaghan explores issues that many returning combat veterans are facing. In the film, she plays Maggie Swan, a combat medic who has recently returned from an extended deployment in Afghanistan. Upon returning, Swan finds that she has a difficult time reconnecting with her young son. In addition, the character must also face the realities of post traumatic stress.

Films that revolve around the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq have had trouble finding an audience over the last several years, but this homecoming drama should hit its mark with both military families and drama fans in general. While this isn't a typical role for Monaghan, the star is no stranger to the trials of motherhood. Her daughter Willow was born in 2008, and the actress is currently pregnant with her second child. This is an interesting take on a military drama, and explores an aspect of military life that many films tend to gloss over. Viewing the drama that occurrs outside of the rigors of combat is an interesting angle for writer and director Claudia Meyers.
 
In addition to Fort Bliss, which releases this fall, Michelle will also be seen in Better Living Through Chemistry and A Many Splintered Thing, both due to release this year.
