Director's Letter - April 2016

April 2016 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Month of the Military Child. The Month of the Military Child creates awareness of the sacrifices military children make to the nation. The theme this year is Young Lives Big Stories and it highlights that Military children are strong, resilient and equipped to adapt to present and future changes, such as relocations, deployments, reintegration, caring for a Wounded Warrior parent or honoring a fallen Soldier parent.

I would like to encourage everyone to take part in our many MOMC events this month. We have specials at the Carlisle Barracks Golf Course and Bowling Center as well as Special events at the Moore Child Development Center and the McConnell Youth Center including Family Indoor Drive-In Movie night.

Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is celebrating military kids. Part of that celebration includes Family Fun Fair presented by ACS at Carlisle Barracks above Indian Field on April 23. It is sure to be a morning of fun for the whole family with activities for kids of all ages including games, presentations, food and a petting zoo. That same weekend we will also be hosing Jim Thorpe Sports Days with teams from the Senior Service Colleges. Come out and support the home team during this friendly competition! Get the word out to wear purple on April 15. We wear purple to recognize the sacrifices that the children and youth of our military personnel make every day. Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military as it combines all the colors of the all the service branch uniforms. Please see the ads in this month’s issue of First Choice for a listing of events.

Please join me in thanking our children for their resilience, strength and enthusiasm for their family, the Army and of course our country.
