1. Military Support Programming Survey 2014

The Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) released its report on the results of the Military Support Programming Survey 2014. Over 1,500 active duty members, veterans, retirees, and their families were polled in order to gather their insights on military family life. In particular, the survey was interested in learning what resources and programs the participants found most valuable. Read about the Military Support Programming Survey here.
