Month of the Military Child

Our nation’s military families make a lot of sacrifices for our country. The Department of Defense designated the month of April in 1986 as ‘The Month of the Military Child’ to commend the sacrifices and devoted support of service members’ children.

There are over one million active-duty dependent children living worldwide. These military children are resilient, remaining steadfast during deployments and frequent moves across the country and the world. According to the Department of Defense Education, on average a military child may move six to nine times during their school career.

At Benchmark, we are proud to support military families. Join us in recognizing these incredible kids and their contributions to our country!
