It’s the Month of the Military Child: Here’s Where to Find Events in Your Area
April 26, 2018
Military families go through a lot, from deployments to frequent moves. Military children sacrifice a lot, too, but they face unique struggles of their own. Throughout the month of April, we honor the sacrifices made by children in military families through the Month of the Military Child, which includes various activities and services thorughout the country.
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. It's important to show support for these children this month and all year round, which is why many communities host school programs, events and other initiatives to honor military children.
