Fort Irwin children are “Proud, Ready & Resilient”

Child, Youth and School Services honor our children during the Month of the Military Child

In 1986, Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger designated each April as the “Month of the Military Child.” Recognizing the contribution that the military child makes as their parent or parents serve our nation, it is during April of each year that all branches of services provide special days and events to honor Families and their children.

Military children are an inspiration and a source of pride for our nation. Frequent moves and family separations through deployments, and then reintegration, makes life especially challenging. Often, military children are looked up to for their resilience and ability to deal with life-changing events.

This year’s theme is “Proud, Ready, & Resilient” and marks the 27th anniversary of this special month.

To celebrate, Fort Irwin is having a Fun Fair for the entire family and the Presidential Fitness Challenge for children ages 6-17. The event is free for the entire community. There will be bounce houses, a variety of games, and a 3-on-3 Basketball Championship. All participants of the Presidential Fitness Challenge will receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States.

Join CYSS at Jack Rabbit Park and the Fitness Connection from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 13 and receive a free T-Shirt, water bottle, hotdog, chips and a drink while supplies last.
