?Those who put on the uniform of our country show tremendous self-sacrifice and service to others,? said Maj. Gen. Joseph J. Taluto, The Adjutant General for the State of New York. ?I can think of no better group of military women more deserving of our military family?s praise than those serving women who balance their careers as Soldiers or Airmen and mothers for their children. They are heroes in their families, in their communities and deserve that recognition across our great state and our nation,? Taluto said. U.S. Army photo by Lt. Col. Paul Fanning. (RELEASED)
