In Our Communities

February 16, 2024

About 15 high school students and parents from Alaska’s Raven Homeschool toured the Army National Guard’s Combined Support Maintenance Shop and Bryant Army Airfield at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska last week, according to a DVIDS story. “The Guard does not simply have a presence in the community but is also a proactive force that actively engages and assists when times are tough,” a recruiter, Staff Sgt. Nahomy Acevedo, said….

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. But it’s on all of us,” Lt. Gov. Aruna Miller (D) and First Lady Aruna Miller wrote in a recent Baltimore Banner op-ed. “States, businesses and nonprofits have a critical role in ensuring military families have the resources to thrive.” Moore announced a package of related legislative and executive priorities last year, according to a press release. They included initiatives on spouse military employment support and doubling state employees’ leave time if they serve in the National Guard or military reserves.
