• April is the Month of the Military Child, and Purple Up Day is observed on April 15 of each year.  This is the perfect time to show admiration and respect for our nation's youngest heroes...military children!    

    Military children are resilient and frequently have to adjust to new social norms within schools, communities, and an ever-changing support network. In April, we will celebrate our military children and their ongoing sacrifices by engaging in various activities throughout the entire month.  

    Check out the list of events below to show your support.
