Families have long been recognized as the supportive strength behind the Army’s Soldiers. And often at the heart of those families are the Soldiers’ children.
Since 1986, Army installations have recognized the sacrifices of military children by celebrating the Month of the Military Child. The theme for this year’s recognition is “Proud, Ready and Resilient,” highlighting the ability of military children to succeed despite frequent relocations, reintegration, deployments, and loss and/or care of a wounded parent.
