Missouri U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers Get Childcare Help

Finding access to childcare is a struggle in Missouri and the U.S. Army Reserve is no different.

The reserve is testing out a program to help soldiers in the Kansas City area get childcare during drill weekends and annual training.

Colonel Ellen Coddington, the Reserve’s Family Program Director, says there’s no cost to the soldiers and their families.

She says the program is meant to help with recruitment, readiness, and quality of life.
