Purple Up USAA Community.png

 

April is Month of the Military Child. It’s a time to celebrate and recognize the strength and sacrifices of military children across the globe. Especially in this time of uncertainty, when many military parents are on the front lines of this crisis actively supporting our national response to COVID-19. To show your support and to thank military kids for their service too, you can “Purple Up” with @USAA on April 17,  by wearing purple and taking a photo to share on social using #Honorthroughaction and #Purpleup. Hope you will join the effort!

 

Did you know:

  • There are over 1 million military children according to the Department of Defense
  • The biggest age group of military children is 0-5 years
  • Military children are often faced with hurdles that include a deployed parent or even having to change schools often
