Month of the Military Child takes place in April. From deployments to new schools, military children are faced with unique challenges that ordinary youth their age never experience. Their ability to adapt to present and future changes deserves our respect and admiration. In an effort to recognize the hard work- and applaud- the courage of military children, the Department of Defense (DOD) has deemed April as the Month of the Military Child (MOMC).
Month of the Military Child is a time to honor military youth for the important role they play in contributing to the strength of the Army Family. MOMC also reaffirms the Army’s commitment to ensuring excellence in schools, childcare and youth services as well as, providing a strong supportive environment where children can thrive.
Military kids are a treasured resource and they sacrifice and serve in their own way. To honor their service, in 1986 Caspar Weinberger declared April as the Month of the Military Child. Schools, organizations and installations honor and celebrate military children all over the world.
The awareness color for Military Family Support is Red, White and Blue.
