The Covenant US Style

Saw this article and thought the difference between the way we do things and the way they are done over the water is striking.

Army Leaders Sign Covenant with Families

To summarise the article, senior members of the military sign a document at each army installation that recognises the importance of families and commits cash and other resources for;

* Standardizing and funding existing Family programs and services
* Increasing accessibility and quality of healthcare
* Improving Soldier and Family housing
* Ensuring excellence in schools, youth services, and child care
* Expanding education and employment opportunities for Family members

Of course I don't know whether or not this will directly translate into anything but a flag waiving display of hot air but it looks like a very good initiative and one that is lacking from the MoD

Be interesting to hear peoples thoughts
