Dressed in dress blues for a local Daddy-Daughter Dance. Trying on momma’s boots to clomp around the house as a soldier. The tightest hug you’ve ever seen, with those small arms wrapped around their heroes’ necks. Those heartfelt moments tug at the heart strings of today’s military children.
Military children have a special place in my heart. My daughters are among the nearly 2 million children who were simply born into the military life. They didn’t choose this life. Yet they embrace it. Do they do it because they love military life? Nah. They do it because they love their parent who serves in the Armed Forces.
April is the Month of the Military Child. This month, MilitaryShoppers readers are encouraged to submit photos of their favorite military child. The winner will receive a $50 shopping spree.
The deadline for photo entries is April 30. Don’t delay. Enter to win the MilitaryShoppers Month of the Military Child photo contest today.
