Strength also comes from compassion. Pearl Speer has been an Army wife for 39 years and a mother to two Army sons. When she first joined the Army community, the focus was on the Soldier and the mission. Army Families had to fend largely for themselves. Pearl recognized an area where she could help other Army Families. She became the Director of Fort Riley Army Community Services, often doing four different jobs as she worked to create programs to provide vital services to Families in need. Today, Soldiers at Fort Riley can focus more on their work, knowing that their Families are in good hands.
