Military Matters: Navy and paternity leave

(WTVM) – New fathers in at least one branch of the military could be getting more paternity leave time.

The United States Navy is considering tripling what it offers now, which is up to 10 days of paid leave for married fathers.

In July, maternity leave was extended for female sailors and Marines to 18 weeks. The Navy says officials in Washington are reviewing this policy.
