Celebrate the Month of the Military Child
Military children are amazing. They move often, go months without seeing a parent, live far away from doting grandparents, and aren’t sure where to call home. In April, we celebrate them during the Month of the Military Child, a commemoration that started in 1986.
Organizations throughout the Department of Defense honor military kids during April in several ways, including wearing purple on April 15th, honoring those military kids who have gone above and beyond in their communities, and offering some discounts and prizes throughout the month.
The best way to honor a military kid, however, is to recognize that their life is a little different, a little harder, and a little lonelier. And maybe offer them some cookies.
