DoD Recognizes Military Family Month

Throughout November, the Department of Defense is celebrating Military Family Month, when personnel serving around the world are honored and recognized for their commitment and the contributions they make every day in support of our nation.

Last year President Obama said that our nation owes “each day of security and freedom that we enjoy to the members of our Armed Forces and their families. Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members and loved ones who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support.”

Community leaders, businesses, and military bases and posts are teaming up to recognize military families through special events such as: open houses, fun runs, family fun nights, and community dinners; discounts at MWR facilities, local business and sporting events; and special recognitions during community activities throughout the month of November.
