Since 1986, April has been designated the Month of the Military Child. Military installations all over the world are hosting special events, plus free and discounted activities in honor of military children, and most of these events and activities fall under 2 major categories: those hosted by CYS (Child and Youth Services) and those hosted by MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation). Some activities are just for kids, but many are for the entire family.
