Brave Hearts, Resilient Souls
The Month of the Military Child was established to underscore the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. There are approximately 2 million military children, ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old; 1.3 million military children are school-aged. Care of military children sustains our fighting force, and strengthens the health, security and safety of our nation’s families and communities.
The Army recognizes Month of the Military Child as an opportunity to honor the commitment, contributions and sacrifices of our military children. Army children are committed in their support for their Soldier Family and patriotism. Strong and resilient Army children are essential to the success of the Army’s mission. Army children have always been a vital part of the Army’s ability to stand strong with the Soldier. Army children are strong, resilient and equipped to adapt to present and future changes.
