Month of the Military Child (MOMC)
April is nationally recognized as the Month of the Military Child. This is a month to specifically recognize the important role military youth play in the armed forces community. Be sure to help us honor military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome.
Purple UP!
Each state often chooses a specific date to dedicate to MOMC specific activates. In 2020 we will celebrate on Thursday April 9th. Schools, organizations, businesses and families across the state can participate in many ways to recognize military youth in April. How will you Purple Up?!
Stay tuned for ways to Purple Up as April
draws closer!
