Woodbridge, VA, April 30, 2013 - April began the Month of the Military Child, a 30-day celebration of the courage and sacrifice of military youth.
On Fort Belvoir, the celebration originated with a dinner where servicemen, family members, and children filled the Fort Belvoir Community Center’s ballroom. The event, hosted by the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (DFMWR), featured remarks from Fort Belvoir’s U.S. Army Garrison Commander, Col. Gregory D. Gadson, and Trevor Romain, Co-Founder of the Comfort Crew for Military Kids, along with raffle prizes for the families.
Installations across the military celebrate this special month with family oriented activities and gatherings. Belvoir Federal Credit Union supports the Month of the Military Child by being a primary sponsor at the dinner where benefits of our membership to military families and children are presented. Throughout the month, we also hosted activities for new families arriving to Fort Belvoir, provided water to participants in the Spring into Spring 5K/5MI race, and attended the KidsFest on Fort Belvoir to provide a fun environment where children can play games and win prizes.
