Stop lumping servicewomen and military wives in same category

At a recent event she hosted to honor servicewomen, Second Lady Karen Pence remarked that “highlighting military women and families [is] one of her main platforms,” and that her role with regard to military women is “one of encouragement, it’s one of gratitude.”

As the mother of a newly married male Marine, Ms. Pence has admirable intentions. However, lumping military women and military spouses and families into the same category diminishes the service of women who have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States.
