JBLE hosts Month of the Military Child event

By Senior Airman Delaney Gonzales 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

April is recognized as the Month of the Military Child, with 2019 being the 33rd year of bringing awareness to the crucial role military children play in the armed forces culture and community.

Military children face challenges such as extended family separations, frequent moves and the stress of deployments.

The Month of the Military Child is a way to celebrate the unique aspects of being a military child that most other children outside the military may never have to face. Special events have been taking place all month to recognize these children.

Month of the Military Child is part of the legacy left behind by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, who established it in 1986. According to the Department of Defense, as of 2018 there are approximately 1.7 million total-force military children worldwide.
