— State lawmakers spent Tuesday at Fort Bragg, speaking with soldiers and their spouses. They asked the families what the state could do better.

Troops say it is hard for their spouses to get jobs because employers know they move often. They also voiced concerns about education, getting loans, and housing.

Lawmakers have not decided how they will use the information.
