April is Month of the Military Child, a time to recognize the sacrifices made by military families and their children. On April 15 you can wear purple to show your support for our military families.
Wearing the color purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Coast Guard, Air Force, and Navy blue.
