The Military Child’s Creed: Celebrating April’s Month of the Military Child
I am an American Military Child.
I am a Warrior in my own right, and a member of a Military Family.
I serve with my Military Parent, who serves the people of the United States.
I will always place the mission first: to stand beside, behind with my Family.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will not leave a fellow military brat hurting.
I will stand beside them.
I am disciplined, but young.
Physically and mentally tough but vulnerable.
I will ask for help when I need it!
I am adaptable and I am resilient.
I stand ready to say “Good-bye”, whisper “I miss you”, and shout “Welcome Home”.
I am a representative of the American Military Family and the American way of life.
I am an American Military Child!
