FORT BRAGG — A Fayetteville woman working to improve insurance coverage for military children is one of three finalists for 2013 Air Force Spouse of the Year.
Susan Reynolds, whose husband is Tech. Sgt. Jeremy Reynolds, based at Pope Field on Fort Bragg, was nominated for her work on federal legislation to reduce out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatments for military children. Reynolds was moved to push for changes after discovering that her special-needs son didnt receive the same benefits as children covered by Medicaid, according to her nomination.
Reynolds is working on a masters degree in public administration at UNC-Pembroke.
The Military Spouse of the Year contest is sponsored by Armed Forces Insurance. The public is allowed to vote in the contest on March 5 at www.msoy.militaryspouse.com. Winners from each branch of the military will be announced March 7.
A single winner representing all military spouses will be named May 9 at a ceremony at Joint Base Myer-Henderson-Hall in Northern Virginia.
