In spite of the extraordinary challenges they face, military kids have proven to be some of the strongest, brightest kids around. They are vibrant and flexible. And they shine in the most difficult circumstances.
Operation Homefront is proud to honor the strength, courage and achievements of our warriors’ children through a special award – the 2012 Military Child of the Year. If you know a military child who shines, please nominate him or her for this special award. They might be in your neighborhood or school. You might know them from church. It only takes a moment to fill out the form and here’s what it could mean to one of these young heroes:
- A paid trip to Washington, D.C. for a special ceremony with high-level militarydignitaries
- Much-deserved recognition for our young patriots
The contest is open to all branches of the military, including the Coast Guard. One child from each branch of service will be chosen and given this high honor. For more information and to nominate, please visitwww.operationhomefront.net/mcoy. Deadline is January 15, 2011.
Thank you for helping us recognize our youngest heroes.
