Concerns of military members and their families

By signing a proclamation each year, the president declares November Military Family Month. The month serves as a way to show gratitude to the nation’s military service members and their families for their sacrifices. “During Military Family Month, we pay tribute to and thank our military families for their service to our country, and we recognize the extraordinary ways in which they give of themselves for us all,” President Obama said in this year’s proclamation.

This month’s In Focus series will highlight efforts by those connected to the military community to bring awareness and solutions to the challenges military families face.
