Vice Chancellor Mike Haynie: “Building a Strong Country Requires Treating Our Military Families Better”
Dr. Michael Haynie, the vice chancellor for strategic initiatives and innovation and founding executive director of Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, wrote an
op-ed in The Hill on how we need to focus efforts to better support military families.
“What does doing better mean? It means acknowledging in our public policy and public discourse that we put our security at risk when we do not adequately care for, support and empower our military families. It means that both the public and private sectors must join together and act to make strengthening our military families a national priority. It means that building a prosperous and safe nation for future generations requires that we treat our military families as a treasured national resource. That would be better.”
