AUGUST 24, 2021 – “We serve, too.” Make no mistake. The kids of active duty military service members and disabled veterans also serve their country, through the challenges they face as part of their unique lifestyles. And they are listening to the conversations we are all having in our homes about Afghanistan.
Camp Corral asked thousands of military-connected children what they most wanted people to know about their culture, families, and experiences. Explaining their special understanding of service was one of the top fifteen things they told us.
A collaborative effort supported by DAV (Disabled American Veterans), led to the creation of “15 Things Military and Veteran Children Want You To Know,” a critically important extension of Psych/Armor’s groundbreaking course “15 Things Veterans Want You to Know.” This short, on-demand video brings the voices of military-connected youth to life, and allows us to take important steps toward cultural humility when interacting with these resilient and amazing kids.
Join us for a panel discussion – Breaking down the “15 things”: understanding their importance to military kids and how critical it is to embrace this moment at home while our children are listening.
The event is scheduled for August 25, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time. Click HERE to register for the discussion.
