During Military Family Month, we honor the families of our Armed Forces and thank them for their dedication to our country. Though only a small percentage of our Nation’s population, our troops bear the great responsibility of protecting our people.

Ensuring that military families receive the respect they deserve and the support they have earned is a top priority for my Administration. The strength of our Nation is measured not just by our success on the battlefield, but also by our ability to support those families who have made so many sacrifices for us. Time and again, military families have shown their heart in the face of adversity. We have a solemn obligation to ensure that while our men and women in uniform discharge their duties, we do all we can to promote and preserve the well-being of their families. We must also support the families of our wounded warriors and our fallen heroes who have paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy.

                Proclamation 8444 of October 30, 2009

                
Military Family Month, 2009

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                No one pays a higher price for our freedom than members 
                of our Nation's military and their families. As sons 
                and daughters, husbands and wives, and mothers and 
                fathers are deployed, military families endure with 
                exceptional resilience and courage. They provide our 
                troops with invaluable encouragement and love, and 
                serve our Nation in their own right. During Military 
                Family Month, we honor the families of our Armed Forces 
                and thank them for their dedication to our country.

                Though only a small percentage of our Nation's 
                population, our troops bear the great responsibility of 
                protecting our people. They, along with their families, 
                serve us every day with courage and dignity. Ensuring 
                that military families receive the respect they deserve 
                and the support they have earned is a top priority for 
                my Administration.

                The strength of our Nation is measured not just by our 
                success on the battlefield, but also by our ability to 
                support those families who have made so many sacrifices 
                for us. Time and again, military families have shown 
                their heart in the face of adversity. We have a solemn 
                obligation to ensure that while our men and women in 
                uniform discharge their duties, we do all we can to 
                promote and preserve the well-being of their families. 
                We must also support the families of our wounded 
                warriors and our fallen heroes who have paid the 
                ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy.

                This month, we celebrate the tremendous contributions 
                of military families, convey to them our deepest 
                respect and appreciation, and recommit ourselves to 
                their support.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 2009 as 
                Military Family Month. I call on all Americans to honor 
                military families through private actions and public 
                service for the tremendous contributions they make in 
                the support of our service members and our Nation.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                thirtieth day of October, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.
