“If a soldier is worried about his family, he cannot perform his job to the best of his abilities,” said military spouse Becky Pillsbury

Pillsbury, who was joined by Army Maj. Gen. John MacDonald, commander, U.S. Army Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command, spoke with bloggers during a DoD Bloggers Roundtable, Aug. 21, about the Army Family Action Plan. In its 25th year, the Army Family Action Plan is a grassroots effort to listen to and prioritize Army family issues and soldier issues through a series of meetings and conferences. The program has resolved or reviewed 633 issues over the 25-year period, said MacDonald.

Joining us on the call were Bryan with A Major's Perspective, Kat with, and the National Military Family Association.
