Month of the Military Child


April is the Month of the Military Child. This awareness month was established to underscore the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. I was a military brat. My father was in the Navy as a tail gunner and then transferred to the Air Force. My father did that to be able to spend more time with us and because he did not want to leave the military. My father retired as a CMSgt with 39 years. Being in the Navy he traveled much  more. There are approximately 2 million military children, ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old; 1.3 million military children are school-aged. Care of military children sustains our fighting force, and strengthens the health, security, and safety of our nation’s families and communities. The Network offers special thanks to all the NCTSN sites that provide care and support for our military children and families. To find out more about military children and families click here.

    This is very near and dear to my heart. I was a military kid and grew up had a family while I was in the military. Being in the military is a different life. From moving so many times and having to make new friends and try to fit in. And then having to deal with patents that deploy. I married another military member so they had to deal with both parents deploying.
