The Institute, in conjunction with Kansas: Operation Military Kids, distributed literature about children and deployment, books and other informational tools at the annual Month of the Military Child Festival at Fort Riley in April. The festival is a day devoted to honoring children’s service and providing the families with a variety of resources. April is nationally recognized as the Month of the Military Child, and the purpose of the festival was to celebrate the role of military children. Children of military members face a variety of unique responsibilities and circumstances in supporting their families during deployment and other service. We also had the Institute train up and running full speed for the kids to ride.
