April-Month of the Military Child

Being part of a military family is special!

Military children sometimes have different experiences compared to other children. If a parent is deployed the child might have only one parent or their grandparents looking after them or have bedtime stories told over video chat. Even when a parent is not deployed they still have different experiences including seeing their parent in full uniform and moving often. April is the month of the military child where these children are recognized and celebrated. If you know a military child ask them to share their stories, experiences, or thoughts especially with other children. Let them know that they are special!
