Five outstanding military children were the recipients of the Military Child of the Year® Award April 7 in Washington, D.C. Operation Homefront, an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors, awarded a military child from each service for their courage and service to their communities.
First Lady Michelle Obama honored Nicole Goetz, Taylor Dahl-Sims, Kyle Hoeye, Margaret Rochon and Melissa Howland for finding a need in their community and then doing something about it. From volunteering their time to help pregnant military spouses, sending care packages and videos to troops overseas to hosting a seminar for teachers about the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder on military families, these kids are selflessly making a difference in the lives of the people around them.
