Month of the Military Child - Celebrating Military Kids

The Defense Health Agency celebrates Month of the Military Child in April. There are more than 1.6 million military children who face many challenges and unique experiences because of their parents’ service.

This year, to recognize Month of the Military Child in April, the Military Health System is offering recommendations for parents to help their children process loss and adjust to new places during military moves, and other anxiety provoking events.
