April is Military Child Month!

Rachael Vaphides, School MFLC for Naval Base San Diego in California worked with the children at her school to create this beautiful representation of military children. The children traced their hands and then used stickers to represent deployments, currently deployed parents and the number of different schools they have attended. They decided how it would be displayed (by grade level) and counted all the stickers to give us an accurate portrayal of how these children’s lives have been impacted by deployment.
