SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Children at the Schriever Child Development Center salute in honor of the Month of the Military Child.

The Month of the Military Child was established by Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger in 1986. The month is recognized each April for the contribution that military children make as their parents serve the nation. During April each year, all branches and components of the military provide special days and events to honor military families and children.

The CDC here has planned events throughout the month to honor military children. These events include a crazy hair day April 1, community color run April 4, sports jersey day April 8, parent story day April 10, and more.
