WASHINGTON - Today, former Senator Elizabeth Dole was joined by military caregivers to speak with Tom Hanks and military wife Jessica Allen on TODAY Tuesday announcing the creation of the Hidden Heroes campaign. Dole discussed her time caring for her husband and the men and women she met along the way who continue to serve the nation taking care of our wounded warriors. Chairman Thornberry commented on the initiative:
"An often untold story is that of the men and women who take care of our wounded warriors after they've returned home. These military caregivers committed to supporting their service members while they defended the nation and continue to care for them after they've returned home. I applaud Elizabeth Dole and all those involved in raising awareness about these heroes and encourage you to learn more about veterans and those who care for them in your community."
