Senator Janet Nguyen is proud to announce that the California State Legislature has approved Senate Concurrent Resolution 116 (SCR 116) which declares April 2018 as the Month of the Military Child. SCR 116 specifically honors the more than 158,000 military children living in California whose parents serve in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserves. Underscoring the importance of this recognition, SCR 116 was unanimously approved by both chambers of the Legislature.

“Military children have to adapt their lives to meet the requirements of their parent’s military obligations. Changing schools and coping with long-term family separations are just some of the major sacrifices that these young children make while their parents serve our country,” said Senator Janet Nguyen. “SCR 116 sheds light on the impact of military service on children and encourages all Californians to show their appreciation for these brave children.”
