Desert Storm Notebook

1602 lb 25aFebruary 1991: According to an article appearing in the fall issue of Army Families, the possibility of long-term troop deployments for OPERATION DESERT STORM, has prompted the Army’s top personnel officer to take a hard look at single-parent soldiers’ and dual-service couples’ Family Care Plans. Soldiers’ Family Care Plans should include such items as: 1) Powers-of-attorney for their children’s guardians; 2) Notarized certificates of acceptance from guardians; 3) Applications for the children’s military identification cards; and 4) Allotment of forms or proof of financial provisions for the children.
