BRIEF: Veterans Affairs' Wilkie coming to Spokane for family military summit

Spokesman-Review - 10/4/2018

Oct. 04--Fairchild Air Force Base will host Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie later this month as he takes part in the Congressional Military Family Summit.

Wilkie is coming on Oct. 17 on the invitation from U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. The family summit brings service members, their families and Department of Defense officials to discuss pressing issues facing military families, according to a news release.

Wilkie will take part in the activities at the base, which run from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Armed Forces Reserve Center, 300 E. Eaker Ave., at Fairchild Air Force Base.

The summit was held last year Fort Benning, Georgia, which is the home district of U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop, Jr., D-Georgia.

"The Military Family Summit allows us to better understand the unique challenges facing our military families," Bishop said in the release.
