Military Family Appreciation Month

Their commitment to the nation, he added, “goes above and beyond the call of duty.”“Just as our troops embody the courage and character that make America's military the finest in the world,” Obama said, “their family members embody the resilience and generosity that make our communities strong.” http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2011/1111_militaryfamily/
