There are nearly two million military-connected children. They live with the challenges presented by not only frequent moves, but parental deployments, and a host of life transitions that include reintegration and, for too many, the return of a profoundly changed parent. Each year at this time our nation recognizes the contribution that the military child makes as their parent or parents serve either on Active Duty or in the Reserve components of the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard. After twelve years of war, though our country is eager to turn its attention elsewhere, the acknowledgement of this very special group of children is more important than ever.
