Federal proposal has more for military support

Michelle Obama has become an advocate for military families. She has been instrumental in getting military support items in the federal budget.

The First Lady was at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington for a luncheon with military spouses. She announced that she had heard many military families and their needs and wanted to do something. But Mrs. Obama also said she is not seeking credit.

Here are some of the proposals:
-More money spent on counseling and support for military families.
-Money for military child care.
-Department of Defense money to build or renovate schools.
-Money for military spouses in the form of tuition assistance and intern programs.
-Coast Guard housing.
-Programs for children in military families.

No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, those proposals are worthy. And they should not be tied to any deficit reduction. If we can't support our military and their families, than nothing else matters.
