Celebrate Military Child Month

Friday, April 26, 2013 - 00:00

Women LeadershipDear Friend,

Children play an important role in our military communities and they deserve our support. As such, please join me in celebrating Military Child Month this month to honor military families and thank them for their sacrifices.

Military families move between assignments on a regular basis. While reassignments can be beneficial to a military career, they are often difficult for the children of military families. The average military student faces transition challenges more than twice during high school, and many military children will attend six to nine different school systems from kindergarten through high school. Fortunately, there are a number of California programs committed to assisting military families with transition challenges.

Please join me in supporting military personnel and their loved ones. Visit my website to learn more and to nominate a veteran for recognition.
