The Comfort Crew for Military Kids (CCMK) invites supporters of the national non-profit to participate in a virtual fun run to collectively reach the goal of 2,000,000 steps to support military kids during the Month of the Military Child.
Editor's Note: Every year, Stars and Stripes publishes stories from children to celebrate April's Month of the Military Child. Here is one submitted last week from Humphreys West ES 4th-grader Tuana Turnbull, a Gold Star child.
On April 25, many students across the country will not be in their classrooms. Instead they will be taking the opportunity to join their parents/guardians in the nationally recognized “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day 2019”.
I am a military child
We live overseas
We eat new foods
We use different money
We speak different language
We go to new schools and learn new things
Each friend we make is from the states
We say goodbye
We'll be back soon!
