Secretary of the Army Pete Geren, referring to the Army's plan to double its investment in Family support programs for Soldiers

So much of the Family support over the years has been based on volunteers, where you have spouses that carry the heaviest burden for Family support initiatives. One deployment, perhaps that works; two deployments, that's starting to be too much to ask; and three deployments is pushing those volunteers to the breaking point.
