Must Read

According to the latest government report, some soldiers and their family members are driving three hours to get regular medical prenatal care or traveling 53 miles to and from work on remote or isolated facilities in the United States, outlining the need for Defense officials to look at the entire picture of support programs for military forces and their families at these bases. According to a report released by the Government Accountability Office, the Department of Defense has to assess the risks of not delivering such support services and design a strategy to fulfill the needs of servicemen and their families. Since 1989, 43 facilities in the United States have been designated as “remote or isolated” for morale, health, and leisure by the Department of Defense or Congress.
