April is Month of the Miltary Child

In 1986 Caspar Weinberger designated April to be the Month of the Military Child. Children whose parents serve, experience unique situations and sacrifices (dad/mom absent for extended periods of time–limited contact, frequent moves homes/schools,) older children are aware of the personal danger their parents face and may be without a close support system (close relatives nearby..) to help/connect with.
