April, Month of the Military Child provides an opportunity to recognize and honor our youngest heroes, military children.  Established by former secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger in 1986, the designation of April as the month of the military child acknowledges the significant role military youth play in our communities.  These youth face many challenges that are unique to their situation, such as having a parent deployed, frequent moves, new schools, and leaving friends.  Their ability to adapt to these challenges deserves our respect.  According to the Virginia Department of Education, Virginia has more than 80,000 school-age military connected youth.
