Governor Kelly proclaims April as Month of the Military Child in
TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly signed a proclamation designating
April as the Month of the Military Child in Kansas.
When a Soldier, Airmen, Marine, or Sailor deploys to serve their
country, they often leave loving families behind. The proclamation
honors the strength, sacrifice, heroism, and continued resilience of
the children of service men and women.
"I grew up in a military family, so I understand the challenges kids
face when family members serving their country can't be home for
special occasions like holidays, birthdays, or ballgames," Governor
Kelly said. "It's our duty as Kansans to stand by military children,
support them, and show them we appreciate them."
Currently, more than 25,000 Kansas children have at least one parent
serving in the military.
The proclamation states the month-long salute to military children
will honor their contributions to Kansas.
