    More than 3,500 troops are in Israel right now to participate in Austere Challenge
    2012, the largest U.S.-Israeli exercise to date. The command post exercise began in
    October and will continue through November in an effort to build on the long-standing
    relationship between the two countries. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S.
    Joint Chiefs of Staff, visited Israel during the exercise and also met with officials there.

    Military financial readiness is getting attention at the highest levels of government
    because of partnerships forged to enhance the financial fitness and long term
    stability of military families. A new partnership formed by Secretary of Defense Leon
    Panetta and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Holly Petraeus, aims to protect
    military families from being the target of unscrupulous financial practices for military
    members with student loan debt. CFPB and the DoD also aim to provide education
    resources and help to those currently having trouble managing student loans.

    Another partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, which began in 1944
    marked a huge milestone in the driveway of a new home. The 20 millionth home loan
    was signed in the driveway of two new homeowners, the spouse of an Iraq war veteran
    and her small son. The VA home loan program guarantees home loans for veterans that
    have served honorably in the DoD.

    Hurricane Sandy swept through the Northeast last week, causing damage and leaving
    behind a path of devastation. That path is now marked by the efforts of sailors, Marines,
    airmen and soldiers that rushed to aid those affected. At least 24 states felt the wrath
    of the super-storm, with widespread flooding, structural damages and power outages.
    Now, the Department of Defense is focusing it's efforts on support.
