City Council Proclaims April as Month of the Military Child in Edinburg

EDINBURG, TEXAS (April 4, 2018) – The Edinburg City Council proclaimed April 2018 as Month of the Military Child in Edinburg.

Month of the Military Child was first established in 1986 by Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger to pay tribute to military children for their commitment, struggles, and unconditional support of our troops because when parents serve in the military their kids serve too.

Approximately two million children have at least one parent currently serving active military duty.

The month-long salute to military children will encourage support for the Kids Serve Too organization and other organizations and campaigns established to provide direct support to military children and families.

In our community, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV helps provide comprehensive and effective services to military children.
