Children of Fallen Patriots Day Honors the Sacrifice of Service Families in West Virginia and Across the Nation
Celebrating Military Children in April
April is the Month of the Military Child. With all the support that veterans receive, it is easy to sometimes overlook the sacrifices made by veteran family members. This month was established and is sponsored by the Departed of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA). Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger created the Month of the Military Child in 1986, and the DoDEA has honored it ever since. During the Month of the Military Child, we highlight how important the family and children are for our service men and women.
