Vice Chancellor Mike Haynie Discusses Senate Testimony before Armed Services Committee
Director of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families Mike Haynie recently testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee, asking for better treatment of military members and their families. His actions were highlighted in a WAER story, where he spoke about just what needs to take place, and the results that may come if no action is taken.
“Children growing up in those families are growing up with a mother or father that is deployed overseas where there is ongoing conflict and combat,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve really come to understand the impact that growing up in a military family will have on these children.”
