Will continue to be a strong advocate for Kansas service members and families
May 31 2012
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) recently joined three Senate caucuses focused on our nation’s Armed Services, including the Senate Army Caucus, the Senate Air Force Caucus and the Senate Military Family Caucus.
“Joining these caucuses will give me the opportunity to have an even stronger voice in support of our service members at home and abroad,” Sen. Moran said. “Our national security is dependent on the strength of our military and I look forward to continuing to be a strong advocate for our service members.”
The Senate Army Caucus will enable Sen. Moran to advocate for superior land power and support for Kansas soldiers and their families, particularly those at Fort Leavenworth and Fort Riley. Similarly, the Senate Air Force Caucus will offer Sen. Moran additional opportunities to promote a stronger and more stable Air Force, especially those airmen and women who serve on McConnell Air Force Base and Forbes Air Field. Smoky Hill and the Great Plains Training Center, which support both Army and Air Force service members, will also be a focus of these caucuses.
The Senate Military Family Caucus focuses on service members but also the needs of their families. As a member of that caucus, Sen. Moran will address policy issues that impact service members’ health and stability, as well as other areas of concern such as employment, the impact of multiple deployments, childcare and education.
