The deadline to nominate a military child for Operation Homefront's 2019 Military Child of the Year® (MCOY) Awards is Wednesday, December 5, 2018. This is an opportunity to recognize the year-round contributions, courage and patriotism of the military community's youngest members. It is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome.

You may have heard of the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) before, but do you know all that it does and how many Marine Families it touches? Read this testimonial about a Marine family who used EFMP to help nagivate the special education process and provide a map to success for their son.
The average military child will attend between 6 to 9 different schools within the parent’s military career making it rather difficult to build a network of friends and support.
Every April the Marine Corps celebrates the Month of the Military Child to recognize the important role military children play in the armed forces community.
