Month Of The Military Child

Month Of The Military Child

Did you know that April is the month of the Military Child?

The Month of the Military Child is part of the legacy left by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. He established the Defense Department commemoration in 1986.

Approximately two million military children have experienced a parental deployment since 2001. There are currently 1.2 million military children of active duty members worldwide. Nearly 80 percent of military children attend public schools throughout the United States.

Military children deal with separations, deployments, frequent moves and even their parents' injuries as part of the life they were born into or entered with their families.


In honor of the children who have lost a loved one while serving, Burn Pit BBQ will be donating 10% of all Online sales in April to Camp Hometown Heroes

Camp Hometown Heroes  is a free week-long overnight summer camp for children and siblings of fallen U.S. service members.


During their visit, the children begin the healing process with other children who have experienced a similar loss, doing the summer activities they love.

Please help us in supporting this amazing organization!
