For most kids, saying goodbye to mom or dad as they leave for deployment is one of the hardest moments in their childhood to endure. Imagine a parent deployed 5-7 times, multiple deployments, long hours of work and high stress level positions for their military parents take a hard toll on these military children. Add in military children that are no near a military base or may not have other military children as peers.
Creating a tiny battle buddy system for military children, where they can learn coping techniques through exercise or sports while meeting other children their age. Military children united for program support, events and empowerment to just have fun.
Military Children who have participated in programs & event with the Military Veteran Project create bonds with others and start their own little battle buddy battalion in their own way. Each child is partnered and receives positive encouragement from the team at the Military Veteran Project.
