While every military child is unique, they all have something in common – they are part of and supported by a broader military community.
During the Month of the Military Child, Department of Defense programs and services through schools, health and family readiness programs come together to make sure kids and parents have what they need to thrive. This includes new resources for positive parenting and a free giveaway for MilKids.
To join in the celebration, consider showing your spirit on Purple Up Day by wearing the color purple to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices.Order a Free Kit
