Every year, April is declared the month for military child appreciation, federally known as the Month of the Military Child. The annual recognition was created in the mid-1980s by the Pentagon and other military organizations. Military children of the United States are recognized for their sacrifice and bravery at home while their parent(s) are deployed away from home.
Generations of children known as “military brats” have traveled the world with their military families and emerged into adulthood with a developed strength to handle anything. These military children withstood separations from deployment, frequent relocating, and, more often than not, the injuries of their parents due to military service.
The strength and resiliency of these military children are inspirational. This year alone has tested the strength of many, as many face the still developing in-home learning system and extended deployments elongating their separation from their parent(s).
Join Advice for Veterans alongside the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and Space Force and recognize the bravery and sacrifices of our military children!
