News Roundup: Reflecting on Month of the Military Child


April was the Month of the Military Child. We want to continue to remember the daily sacrifices they make. From deployments to constantly transitioning to new schools, military children are faced with unique obstacles and challenges that most youth their age never experience. This week’s news roundup brings a collection of articles that discusses the important roles that children play in our military community.

Celebrating the Month of the Military Child“Sponsored by the Department of Defense Military Community and Family Policy, the Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome.”

Month of the Military Child “This year marks 31st anniversary of the Department of Defense designating April as Month of the Military Child, recognizing that the strength of the nation is built on the readiness and resilience of every member of the all-volunteer Army, including the personal sacrifice of Family members and, in this case, the children of military service members and Department of the Army Civilians.”

Military and Veteran Families and Children “Care of our nation's military children helps sustain our fighting force, and helps strengthen the health, security, and safety of our nation's families and communities. Gathered here are resources about military families for caregivers, service providers, and children.”

We should continue to recognize the resilience of our military children. Their ability to adapt to present and future changes constantly deserves our respect and appreciation. Let us continue to celebrate the role they play to our Military’s Health and Readiness.
