Month of the Military Child

Month of the Military Child

Register - Parent Central Services

April marks the national observance of the Month of the Military Child, during which the Department of Defense and communities across the country honor military children and youth. The Army recognizes the Month of the Military Child (MOMC) as an opportunity to honor the commitment, contributions and sacrifices Army children and youth make to our nation through the strength they provide our Soldiers and Families.

This year, Child and Youth Services and Army Community Service are teaming up Month of the Military Child and Child Abuse Prevention Month so offer more for your children and Families to enjoy!
