Esquire Hills is Celebrating April as Month of the Military Child!

 

Military kids are a treasured resource and sacrifice and serve in their own special way while their parents serve our country. To honor their service, in 1986 Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger declared April as the Month of the Military Child.  Schools, organizations and installations will be honoring and celebrating military children all over the world. There are over 4 million U.S. military children all over the world and each military child will move on average about 6-9 times while in their school year, every 1-3 years. Help us celebrate Month of the Military Child in April and don’t forget to Purple Up!
