President and Mrs. Obama recently drove to Fort McNair here in Southwest DC to help stuff napsacks for military children attending the National Military Family Association's Operation Purple summer camps. They packed those 15,000 bags with snacks, books, and even a baseball trading card of presidential pooch "Bo". Its is part of the President's "United We Serve" summer volunteer initiative.
Multiple deployments can be tough on military familes, but they're especially tough on the children. School work suffers, and surveys show behavioral problems increase. The Pentagon tries to help with the Military Family Live Consultant program, which makes counselors available to families. There are resources available online at the Military One Source, Military Homefront and the Military Community and Family Policy websites.
The Pentagon wants members of the armed forces victimized by scam artists in these tough times to know that the Federal Trade Commission wants to help. The FTC's Consumer Sentinel/Military program provides a secure online database where the military can report concerns about identity theft, deceptive lending or mortgage practices.

At the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, Army Sergeant Gabrielle Martinez is one soldier who "makes an impact" on nearly everyone she meets. The information systems analyst with the 20th Support Command has helped fine tune the physical fitness program for her unit, and is also a leader of its color guard. In her 'spare time', she earned a college degree, and is considering Officer Candidate School.
