“April is Month of the Military Child, a time to recognize the sacrifice that the children and youth of our military personnel make. The 4-H Youth Development program of Penn State Extension invites you to join us in the 4th Annual Purple Up! For Military Kids.
We are encouraging everyone across the state and nation to wear purple on Tuesday, April 15th, as a visible way to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red and Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard blue. We hope everyone will take this opportunity to appreciate and celebrate these young heroes. Be creative….the goal is for military youth to see the support of their community!”
