Editor's Note: Every year, Stars and Stripes publishes stories from children to celebrate April's Month of the Military Child. Here is one submitted last week from Humphreys West ES 4th-grader Tuana Turnbull, a Gold Star child.
On April 25, many students across the country will not be in their classrooms. Instead they will be taking the opportunity to join their parents/guardians in the nationally recognized “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day 2019”.

We say goodbye
We'll be back soon!
