The Air Force announced Monday that it has expanded free childcare for families of deployed service members.

Previously, when the Air Force deployed service members, it offered them a maximum of 48 hours of free childcare for each of their children.

The change provides 16 hours of pre-deployment, 16 hours each month during deployment or remote assignment, and 16 hours of post-deployment care per child, according to a release.

But Perry denied he'd been tapped for the position.
