WHY: April is the Month of the Military Child. The Month of the Military Child was established in 1986 by former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger to demonstrate the importance of military children, the role they play and the sacrifices they make in supporting their parents and guardians who are serving in the military. More than two million children have been affected by the deployment of a loved one.
In Utah we have 18,000 military-connected children. Hill Field Elementary has over 400 students, 97% of these children come from military families. This assembly will honor those children, who also serve.
