April is Military Child Month; Wear Purple on April 14th in Recognition

By Becky Bechtel, Indiana, NFRW Armed Services Committee

The Department of Defense estimates there are more than 1.6 million military children who face many challenges and unique experiences as a result of their parents’ service. Without focused support and resources, military children face social and emotional challenges. These challenges include adjusting to curriculum and school climate, difficulty qualifying for special education services, and elevated stress with a risk of depression and anxiety. When you consider that the average military family moves every two to three years, the support of the children of our military deserve our unwavering support.

Founded in 1945, Gold Star Spouse enhances financial benefits for U.S. military spouses and families, as well as brings together those who are enduring the same hardship.
