“We are very pleased President Obama and Governor Romney took the time to address our questions,” MOAA President Vice Adm. Norb Ryan said. “Military Families are thinking about voting now, and they need to have information to make their decision. It’s particularly important to address issues of concern to military families because the first debate on Oct. 3, at the University of Denver, will not be open to the public. Tickets will be distributed to University of Denver students randomly by lottery.”
