Army & Air Force Exchange Service celebrates Month of the Military Child in April
The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is committed to making life better for military communities — including our youngest heroes. The Exchange is celebrating the 2021 Month of the Military Child with virtual events, activities, games and giveaways at https://www.flickr.com/photos/aafespa/50999004554/in/dateposted/ throughout April.
“Military children are often likened to dandelions because they blossom wherever they land,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange honors and celebrates the resiliency of military children with Month of the Military Child activities.”
Protecting the military community remains the Exchange’s No. 1 priority, and stores are ensuring safe, sanitized and secure environments for shoppers of all ages. Military children are also invited to participate safely in virtual Exchange events throughout April at ShopMyExchange.com/momc.
Military children 17 and younger can receive a limited-edition iron-on patch celebrating military brats as well as a coupon for a free treat at participating Exchange restaurants. Shoppers can contact their local Exchange for dates, times and details.
The Exchange is also giving away more than 70 prizes in 16 sweepstakes, including more than $8,000 in Exchange gift cards and the hottest games and toys. Authorized shoppers 18 and older can visit ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes.
Military Families can find details on all Month of the Military Child events — as well as coloring pages, themed recipes, video drawing and more by visiting the Exchange’s community Hub at ShopMyExchange.com/momc.
“Military children serve too and make their parents’ missions possible,” Osby said. “The Exchange salutes our youngest warriors.”
