Team Charleston Purples Up! for Month of the Military Child

By Airman 1st Class Megan Munoz Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The Joint Base Charleston-Weapons Station Child Development Center is celebrating Month of the Military Child by hosting Wacky Hat Wednesdays, Purple Up! Fridays and planting gardens with parents and students. April was named Month of the Military Child by former Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger in 1989 to applaud military children for their daily sacrifices and the challenges they have overcome. Purple is worn throughout the community to show support of the Month of the Military Child.
