Chairman’s Corner: Strengthening Our Military Families

WASHINGTON — Deb­o­rah and I attend­ed a Jan. 24 White House event host­ed by the Pres­i­dent and First Lady announc­ing an excit­ing new effort that renews and enhances our Nation’s com­mit­ment to our mil­i­tary fam­i­lies.

“Strength­en­ing Our Mil­i­tary Fam­i­lies: Meet­ing America’s Com­mit­ment” advances 50 new ini­tia­tives across 16 fed­er­al agen­cies and promis­es to rev­o­lu­tion­ize the way we care for mil­i­tary fam­i­lies on issues rang­ing from child care to men­tal health, from edu­ca­tion and employ­ment to hous­ing.
The Pres­i­dent not­ed right up front that, “This is a mat­ter of nation­al secu­ri­ty. With mil­lions of mil­i­tary spous­es, par­ents, and chil­dren sac­ri­fic­ing as well, the readi­ness of our Armed Forces depends on the readi­ness of our mil­i­tary fam­i­lies.” We could not agree more.
Deb­o­rah and I are remind­ed dai­ly that the incred­i­ble fam­i­lies who sup­port our men and women in uni­form also sac­ri­fice and serve. We are deeply pleased – and grate­ful – for all our mil­i­tary fam­i­lies do, and for this new com­pre­hen­sive effort to care for such a spe­cial group of peo­ple.
