It’s the Month of the Military Child: Here’s Where to Find Events in Your Area
April 26, 2018
Military children sacrifice a lot, from making new friends when their parents get transferred to a new base to dealing with the loneliness of a parent being deployed. Throughout the month of April, we honor the sacrifices made by children in military families with various activities and services during the Month of the Military Child.
There are currently 1.2 million military children of active duty members worldwide, with approximately 2 million military children experiencing a parental deployment since 9/11. With so many military children around the world, it's important to show them our support during the Month of the Military Child and all year long.
