Military kids get recognized

Everyday 1.8 million children of military parents face the uncertainty of what lies ahead for their mothers and fathers.

"Purple Up" is one day set aside during April which is the month of the "Military Child" to recognize our military children and all the sacrifices and courage they display when their parents are deployed or they have to move the family to a new assignment.

The community is encouraged to wear purple to show their support tomorrow.

Candi Dierenfield is the 4H Alaska Military liaison and says tomorrow will be a day everyone can get behind.

"It's just a great way for us to take a moment to recognize them, and maybe have a little peek into their lives at what it's like.

And recognize their resiliency and empathy of these children as we borrow their parents to go and fight for our country.

And heart breaking As it is sometimes their parents don't come back.

So it's great for us to support them the children."
