Month of the Military Child

April is the month of the military child. So many children have at least one parent serving in the military. As the mother of a military child, a military spouse and a military veteran I know first hand that military children are the most resilient and strong people I know and they adapt to any situation they are put in, including being away from parents for long stretches of time.
Often times the children are overlooked and the service member is the one who gets all the praise but never forget about the children who sacrifice just as much
Although we should respect our military families every day, its important to take time to show military children that they are special, that we acknowledge their sacrifices, that we understand their struggles and that we support their journey's.
