(WASHINGON, D.C.) – U.S. Rep. Martha Roby delivered a speech today on the House floor recognizing the important role of military families. Representing several military installations in her district, and as a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Roby is an advocate for America’s service men and women, and their families.
“Our military families are the heart and soul of our Armed Forces.
“Recognizing this, tomorrow at Ft. Rucker in Alabama there will be a Spouse Day. Army husbands and wives will run an obstacle course, fly simulators and shoot m-16’s to experience life as an Army soldier.
“Military families are a vital part of my district, and it is my great honor to represent them.
“Recently, I was in Ft. Rucker and I was speaking to a soldier. His expecting wife was sitting next to me. With tears in his eyes he said, ‘don’t worry about me, I’m ok, just make sure she’s ok.’
“Unnecessary defense cuts could change our military, as we know it today. And these cuts will not affect military operations as much as they could weaken vital support for military spouses and their children.
“Regardless of politics, our military families must continue to have the resources necessary to serve in their support role as military dependents,” said Rep. Roby.
