Army officials say they are trying to make sure soldier's quality of life is as comfortable as possible.It was the focus of a conference at the Officer's Club on Fort Bragg Wednesday.

It's called the "Army Family Action Plan". The goal was to find out what soldiers and their families like and dislike about Army life.

For the past three days teams of volunteers and Fort Bragg workers discussed and debated 39 issues soldiers and family consider big concerns like military housing, retirement benefits, child care, patient services at Womack Army Medical Center and making sure wounded soldiers have proper and adequate clothing while they recover.

While many of the issues can be addressed by local commanders, the other concerns and recommendations are sent to higher commands.

"They review those issues and they make it happen," said Kari Gonzalex with Family Action Plan. "I mean no one is going to tell a three star this can't happen. They are going to find a way to do it, and they find a resolution no matter how long it takes."
