Whereas, since 1986, Army installations around the world recognize the sacrifices and applaud the courage of military children by celebrating the Month of the Military Child throughout the month of April; and

Whereas, each day, military children undergo unique challenges, which they face with resilience and dignity beyond their years; and

Whereas, it is essential to recognize that military children make significant contributions to the country while dealing with uncertainty and concern for their parents during extended hours and long deployments; and

Whereas, the high demand of Family responsibility that military children accept takes courage and strength as they serve the Nation along with their parents; and

Whereas, our men and women in uniform cannot focus on the missions or challenges ahead if they are concerned about their children at home; and

Whereas, the Army strives to provide a safe, nurturing environment for military children to enable a stronger and more resilient fighting force; and

Whereas, the Month of the Military Child reinforces this concept, reminds the nation that the service members’ children also serve, and gives communities an opportunity to share their gratitude for the service of military children; and

Now, therefore, we hereby join the nation in honoring our military children throughout the month of April.

John M. McHugh Secretary of the Army
