Month of the Military Child

Because this month is the Month of the Military Child (as well as Volunteer Appreciation Month!), we also wanted to do something for the children of our Red Dragon Soldiers.  They are true heroes for the resilience and courage they show on a daily basis.  It's not easy to say goodbye to your Soldier dad or mom, whether it's for a field training exercise, a month-long training rotation, or an overseas deployment.

After brainstorming options, and realizing that our unit schedule is already pretty full, we decided to incorporate our kids into the upcoming "Family Day."  The battalion leadership handed out these water bottles to all the children at Family Day and provided water fill-ups at all the stations.  It was fun to see the kids with their water bottles and I hope they felt a small sense of the appreciation we have for them and their sacrifices as Army kids.

These kids are enjoying the afternoon and putting their new water bottles to good use.
