WHAT'S BEING SAID IN BLOGS
Our deepest apologies for linking to a blog on June 10 by a military member's father that had political overtones. It is now removed from Tuesday's edition. The military and other government organizations are prohibited from engaging in partisan political activity. While the appearance of hyperlinks to external web sites does not constitute any form of endorsement by the U.S. Army, linked sites involving politics could be perceived as partisan. In the future, we will strive to avoid any appearance of political debate.
For more information on political activity by federal employees, see the Hatch Act.
"These are individuals and Families who have paid an incredible price to defend our country. We have asked them to go into harm's way. They have done what their country has asked, and I think every effort needs to be made to make sure that they are well taken care of. The entire nation owes these troops a debt that can never be repaid fully."
