Asked and Answered: Hannah’s Song

This is the latest post in our “Asked and Answered” series, in which we periodically feature an exchange between the President — or a Senior Administration Official — and an American who wrote him. If you’d like to write the President yourself, you can do so here.

Meet Hannah, a rising 9th grader at Indian River High School in the North Country region of New York, home to many families from the Army’s 10th Mountain Division of Fort Drum. As the daughter of Lt. Col. Todd E. Bajakian, former commander of Fort Drum’s Warriors in Transition Battalion, Hannah knows first-hand how important it is that we give our military families the support they need.
