You can click the link below to view our full article recently published in military.com to view our argument and proposal for such a program. We present this as a point of departure and recognize that any program must be carefully studied and constructed, and fiscally responsible. We believe that in the wake of an extended armed conflict in which our service members and their families have made extraordinary sacrifices to defend our freedoms, the political landscape is ripe for both parties to get on board with a program to "Support the Troops" that goes beyond letters, cookies, handshakes in the airports, and rhetoric. Such gestures are not insignificant and are indeed welcome, but what we propose will place a "roof over thier heads" that will enable our service familes to build personal wealth through homeownership...just like the citizenry that they defend! Help us help our Military Families share in the American Dream of Homeownership!
