Month of the Military Child (MOMC)

For over 30 years, the Department of Defense has recognized military children during the month of April. Because of their service, commitment and sacrifice to supporting the Army’s mission, it is important to honor and celebrate our military’s youngest heroes.

Month of the Military Child is an opportunity to remember children’s roles in strengthening the military Family. This year’s theme is “Military Kids Can!” The theme recognizes that these heroes often relocate due to their parent’s military career but make every place feel like home.

The Army is thankful for the positivity and enthusiasm of military children as we keep moving forward. We are committed to maintaining excellence in schools, youth services and childcare to ensure that Families always receive the best programming -- no matter where their next adventure takes them.
