Supporting Ohio's Military Families
Since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 18,000 Ohio National Guard members have been deployed to serve in the global war on terrorism. Altogether, more than 60,000 Ohioans have actively served their nation away from home. Approximately 34,000 students in Ohio are members of military families. Frequent moves and family separations through deployments, as well as reintegration issues make life especially challenging. Ohio offers a number of programs to assist military families.

Month of the Military Child
In 1986, the Secretary of Defense designated each April as “The Month of the Military Child” and all branches of services provide special days and events to honor their children. This commemoration recognizes the contributions that military children make as their parents, guardians and families serve our nation. Because of their resilience and ability to deal with life-changing events, military children are an inspiration and a source of pride for our nation.
