April is Military Child Month, a time to recognize the sacrifice of those whose parents serve our nation.
When military children serve, they do so by making sacrifices when parents are deployed, through frequent moves, starting new schools and making new friends on a continuing basis, Barbara Thompson said in a recent interview with The Pentagon Channel for the Month of the Military Child that’s being celebrated in April.
“We feel it’s important for the nation to know that military children also serve their country,” Thompson said.
It’s sometimes easy to forget that it’s not just the members of the military who sacrifice for us, but their families as well. Deployments and moving can be especially tough on young children. That’s something we should all remember, and not just for one month a year.
