Elizabeth Knouse- Director

“Their Lives, Their Stories” is the theme of the 2015 Month of the Military Child, which is celebrated throughout April on military installations. The Month of the Military Child creates awareness of the sacrifices military children make to the nation. “Their Lives, Their Stories” highlights the special lifestyles and contributions military children make to our nation.

I would like to encourage everyone to take part in our many dedicated events this month. We have specials at the Carlisle Barracks Golf Course and Bowling Center. Special trips with Outdoor Recreation and events like Family Movie Night, Children’s Art Display and our annual Youth Volunteer Recognition Ceremony.

Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is celebrating military kids. Don’t miss out on April 25th for the Family Fun Fair presented by ACS at Carlisle Barracks. It’s sure to be a morning of fun for the whole family with activities for kids of all ages. Also that same weekend we will be hosting the annual Jim Thorpe Sports Days with teams from the Senior Service Colleges. Come out and support the home team during this friendly competition! Get the word out to wear purple on April 15. We wear purple to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Purple represents the mixing of all the service branch uniform colors. Turn to page 19 to see an inclusive list of all the activities planned throughout the month.

Please join me in thanking our children for their resilience, strength, and enthusiasm for their family, the Army, and of course, our country. Enjoy the warmer weather and your family!
