In April the armed forces celebrates Month of the Military child.

The month-long celebration thanks military children for their service and recognizes them for their strength, sacrifices and the hardships they face.

On Wednesday, Perdue Elementary School students from military families were shown how much their sacrifices are appreciated.

Team Robins members handed out dog tags to the students. Chief Master Sgt. Gary Hunkins, 78th Air Base Wing chief enlisted manager, delivered the morning announcements at the school before the dog tags were handed out.

During his announcements, he thanked the military students for their strength and the sacrifices they make as children of military parents.

The dog tags have been a big piece in our Month of the Military Child celebrations in the schools. Georgia 4H, Operation Military Kids has provided 3,000 dog tags for all of the active duty military students in Houston County elementary and middle schools as well as a couple of our local private schools.
