April is Month of the Military Child in SD

Purple Up for Military Kids Day


PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) KGFX was visited this morning by two local citizens working to promote April’s Month of the Military Child-as proclaimed by Governor Dennis Daugaard.  Pastor Don Block and Marne Dooley are with a local Operation: Military Kids group and talked this morning about honoring youth who’ve been impacted by deployments in the past and who will face challenges in the future.  On April 15, it will be Purple Up! for Military Kids Day.  All citizens are being encouraged to wear purple on that day.  Purple symbolizes all branches of the military and combines Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue.  Listen to this morning’s interview on the audio bar below:
