Pentagon to expand child care for troops

Reserve and Active duty troops will be getting extra child care when the Defense Department launches a program next year aimed at expanding child care in the local communities.

Waiting for child care on military bases has become a problem for many military families. The two year pilot program is aiming to alleviate the burden.

The program will be established in 13 states and the Defense Department will share lessons learned from military child care with community facilities.

The Defense Department will aide troops with the cost difference when their children are placed in non-military child care centers that meet the standards set be the department.
