There was a great viewpoint in the Dallas Morning News this Memorial Day on the need to honor military families as well as military members. Anyone who served knows how difficult the military can be for the families. President Obama did sign the Caregivers Act recognizing the toll that taking care of injured heroes has on the family.
But there is rampant unemployment of military veterans, incredible stress of multiple deployments on families and serious need for help with depression for spouses.
We continue to take more steps to help military spouses and families - but those tiny steps need to get a lot bigger to fully address the problems they face.
