The Forest Glen Child Development Center kicked off the Month of the Military Child with a Community Musical Instrument Parade, April 3.
For the entire month, installations all over the world are filling their calendars with activities celebrating the Month of the Military Child. This month was established to underscore the important role children play in the Army community.
Child, Youth and School Service programs have planned numerous events ranging from picnics and parades to recreational fairs and fun festivals - all to recognize and applaud Families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make in supporting America's Army.
Though we shine light on our children daily, we take pride in going to the extreme to recognize, appreciate and celebrate the sacrifices often made by our families and their little ones. Celebrating military children fosters stronger relationships with military families and the communities.
We recognize the importance of both child and family to the overall mission of today's military.
