Month of the Military Child
|Event Date||Apr 1 - Apr 30|
April is the month of the Military Child.
Military children face a unique set of challenges when compared to their friends or even to their parents. To honour the sacrifices of the children of the military community, April is recognized as Month of the Military Child.
The month of the military child was first established in 1986 by Caspar Weinberger, U.S. Secretary of Defense. Many MFRC's host special events to honour military children in their communities.
