HELP SALUTE OUR YOUNGEST WARRIORS “Purple Up” for the Military Child
AVET Project is asking you to celebrate April, the month of the Military Child.
Each year in APRIL, families, communities and people of all stripes come together to celebrate military children and applaud them for surmounting unique challenges.
Experts say military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant, and extremely resilient. Military children have learned from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world, and that education doesn’t only come from school. They live history. They learn that to survive means to adapt, that the door that closes one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and new experiences.
The military chose the color PURPLE with the reasoning that purple combines each branch’s colors into one, since the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard all use shades of blue, the Army uses green and the Marines use red. Wearing PURPLE shows your support.
