5) 1% of the US population that serves also shoulders 100% of the burden.

I'm mostly concerned that the US #military, the 1% of the US population that serves, will continue to shoulder 100% of the burden, without support or help from the 99% of the US that doesn't #serve. 

I am concerned that #militaryspending will continue to be cut, that our margin for financial error will get smaller, and that increased #combat #deployments will bring so many more knocks on so many doors. 

We, as military #families and communities, needs a president who understands the service and sacrifice of this life, who thinks carefully before acting, and who doesn't do things just to fulfill a #political mission or end game. 

Meg Flanagan is an educator who has taught in both the public and private sector. Currently, she's a fourth grade teacher in Falls Church City, Virginia and has owned a private tutoring service for military children and those who have learning differences. She's written about the military life at MilKids Ed, NextGen MilSpouse, Homefront United Network, Blue Star Families and the National Military Family Association. As a military spouse, she's an expert at communicating important information over long distances and many time zones. As you can imagine, with several moves under her belt, she is also skilled at organizing large scale projects and optimizing limited time and resources.
