The Republican governor issued a statement saying "we are a proud military family who understands the sacrifices any family goes through when a loved one is serving his or her country."

Haley's spokesman, Rob Godfrey, said the governor's office is not aware of any other governor's spouse who is deployed with the uniformed military.
