Month of the Military Child
As a way to honor children of servicemen and women, Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger designated April as "The Month of the Military Child" in 1986. Military children become resilient through family separations, frequent moves and reintegration leading them to quickly learn how to adapt.
Commands, schools and communities will be holding events and celebrations throughout April. To learn more or find ideas of what you can do to participate visit monthofthemilitarychild.com.
