April is Month of the Military Child
Military children and families may have different experiences than children whose parents are not in the military. For instance, military families often move from place to place presenting different opportunities as well as challenges. Some children may find it difficult to make friends, or may also be very adaptable to different situations. We can support military children by encouraging them to share pictures and stories of places they may have been or experiences they may have had as being part of a Military Family.
"Purple Up" and wear purple on April 17th to show your support of military children and families.
