Military Personnel Subcommittee: Legislative Priorities in Support of Families

Opening Statement

 

Statement of Chairwoman Susan Davis

Military Personnel Subcommittee

 Legislative Priorities in Support of Families

 
March 15, 2010

“The focus of today’s hearing is a review of the priority legislative initiatives needed to support military families.  We have asked the National Military Family Association, the association with the greatest expertise regarding family issues, to help us understand how the Congress can best assist our military families.

 

“This hearing follows a Subcommittee hearing on March 9 that featured researchers from the Rand Corporation and the Army War College who related the conclusions of two studies to assess the effects of deployment on military children.  The Rand study was sponsored by the National Military Family Association and I want to congratulate the association for investing in an excellent study that advanced our knowledge of the toll that war exacts from the children of those that serve.”
