Month of the Military Child 2011

I love that the Military recognizes our youngest warriors.

April is Month of the Military Child and is being celebrated with a theme of "Celebrate Military Children: The Strength of Our Future" on Army garrisons.

More than 1.7 million children under the age of 18 have at least one parent serving in the armed forces. And it is estimated that more than 900,000 children have had one or both parents deployed multiple times.

I plan on dedicating many entries throughout April to our Military children. I am starting it off with a video I made last year interviewing my own children, all three who have known nothing else but life in the Army. I plan on making a new video this month and I'd love to get questions from others.

What would you like to ask a Military Child?

Leave questions in my comments or leave a question for the boys at formspring. I hope to get lots of participation.

What a great idea!

I'd like to know what do they like best about the moves and what is the biggest challenge with the moves?

1) is there a package that you sent your dad when he was deployed that was more memorable than another?

2) I know your mom can be silly... what is one situation that you remember - that to this day - still cracks you up when you think of your mom.

3) Is there a word your dad says that makes you laugh? If so, what is it?
