Month of the Military Child: A time to thank our heroes' heroes

 

It's the pre-school child who-without being asked-passes his dessert to his little sister, simply because she looks sad. It's the second-grader who bravely puts a picture of her father at the head of the table for her birthday party, and the fifth-grade siblings who donate all their earnings from their lemonade stand to the USO that both their parents passed through on the way to Iraq. It's the junior high band member who asks if the spring concert can be dedicated to our deployed service members, and it's the high school cheerleader who organizes a "care package" drive. It's the college graduate who clings just a little longer to her father,

wishing that her mother was at the commencement ceremony instead of in Afghanistan.
