Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger in l986 designated each April as “The Month of the Military Child”. Recognizing the contribution that the military child makes as their parent or parents serve our nation, it is during April of each year that all branches of services provide special days and events to honor the family and their children.

The military child as they grow and become youth into the teenage years, is an inspiration and a source of pride for our nation.  Frequent moves and family separations through deployments, and then the reintegration issues make life especially challenging.  Often military children are looked up to for their resilience and ability to deal with life changing events.

MCAS Miramar, MCCS, and the Miramar Youth & Teen Center are proud to celebrate the military child and appreciate you forwarding the attached flyer for our Month of the Military Child Family Fun Day to your distribution lists. All eligible military patrons and Boys & Girls Clubs that serve military families through OJP and Military Outreach are welcome to attend.

You can also find the flyer at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/132498062/FamilyFunDay-docx. For more information, contact Resource & Referral at 858-577-6959. Boys & Girls Clubs, please contact Alisha Harrison at 858-577-4121 prior to the event to make arrangements for attendance.

Thank you in advance for your support!
