Listen to “November is Military Family Month WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO SEND GRATITUDE, APPRECIATION & SUPPORT TO U.S. MILITARY FAMILIES IN 2021” on Spreaker.
Military Family Month was established by the Armed Forces YMCA in 1996. Proclamations have been issued by U.S. Presidents in recent times, and this year President Biden has followed suit, stating America has the greatest Armed Forces in the history of the world. He says we all owe a debt to those who serve and those that serve alongside them – their families and caregivers.
The backbone of the Army Reserve force is its Families, which is why each November we recognize their commitment, resilience and critical contributions to the Army Reserve.
Just like the Soldiers they support, Army Reserve families are strong and resilient, but face unique challenges. It’s the people of the Army Reserve that deliver on its priorities – readiness, modernization and reform – so taking care of service members and their families is equally important to the mission.
The Army recognizes that service members’ Families, like spouses and kids, also feel the effects of service – whether through relocation, distance from loved ones, among other challenges – but is committed to providing the best quality of life possible. The love and support from military Families is unwavering.
Throughout this awareness month and beyond, the Army Reserve focuses on the community-based services that foster the growth, development and readiness of Soldiers and Families.
Captain Brigette Miller and her husband, Nathaniel, discuss their Military Family experience. Miller will also discuss her journey from military kid to Army Reserve Soldier will offer great insight into the importance of this community. Captain Miller will also share how an Army Reserve Family Readiness Group has supported her unit.
