Did you know that April is the month of the military child? And dandelions? What on earth does that have to do with the military and their kids?
Military families go through a lot- multiple moves all over the country and even around the world, deployments and all the worry and anxiety that comes along, and separation from loved ones. Through it all they continue, no matter where things take them, just like a dandelion.
With approximately 1.5 million active service members in the US military, that is a lot of families and children in our country... more than 40 % of those service members have kids! And we have a heart for those kids and the unique challenges they face.
Jeff Strueker (former US Army Ranger & chaplain, Black Hawk Down survivor, author, and pastor) has strongly put his support behind IMPACT Military KiDS!
According to Jeff, "Military families are America's hidden heroes. We recognize the warrior when he or she comes home from battle but no one throws a parade for the spouse and the children left at home. IMPACT Military KiDS! is finally giving military children the honor their sacrifice deserves."
