There are nearly two million military children sacrificing on behalf of our nation. In honor of these unsung heroes the U.S. Department of Defense has designated April as Month of the Military Child. With frequent moves and parental separation due to deployments, our military children should be encouraged and supported by all of us. That's why the FOX 7 Care Force is joining forces with Operation Military Kids and Operation Homefront Texas to celebrate military children all over the state.
Operation Military Kids is the U.S. Army's collaborative effort with America's communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment.
Operation Homefront Texas mission is to provide emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
Also, by visiting the Operation Homefront Texas Facebook page, parents can obtain an "Appreciation Certificate" for Texas military kids.
