USAG Daegu Exchange rewarding military brats who ‘Purple Up’ with free treats on April 18

by Brian Sonntag
USAG Daegu Exchange – What’s pint-sized, wears purple and is tough enough to meet the challenges of a military upbringing? Military brats! 
On April 18, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service at USAG Daegu will celebrate Purple Up Day, a worldwide recognition of the strength and sacrifice of military children, by offering free treats to any child who wears purple to participating Exchange restaurants.
“With frequent moves, parental deployments and an ever-changing peer group, being a military brat can be difficult,” said Exchange Food Court Manager Hongcha Chang. “The resiliency of military children amid such challenges is an inspiration, and the Exchange salutes their service on Purple Up Day.”
Any child 18 years old or younger who wears purple is eligible to receive a free treat while supplies last. Treats vary by location and may come in the form of a side, fountain drink, dessert or other item. Offer valid April 18 only. Participating USAG Daegu Exchange restaurants include:
• Taco Bell- cinnamon twist 
• Pizza Hut- slice of apple pie
• BK – Ice cream cone
• Subway – 2 cookies
• Popeyes – Free tender strip
• All other restaurants – Free small or kid’s size soft drink
Purple Up Day is held annually during Month of the Military Child, which recognizes the contributions of Warfighters’ children to the armed forces community. The color purple symbolizes the combined colors of all military branches: Army green, Navy blue, Marine red, Coast Guard blue and Air Force blue.
