The administration of Maryland Gov. Wes Moore (D) declared 2024 the “Year for Military Families.” “Common conception holds that the federal government is uniquely responsible for supporting military families.

They included initiatives on spouse military employment support and doubling state employees’ leave time if they serve in the National Guard or military reserves.
