The month of April is celebrated as the “Month of the Military Child,” during which we raise awareness of the challenges military children face and the support they need.

ARVets has a mission of enhancing the quality of life for military families in Arkansas, especially children who may be facing a challenging childhood as a result of a parent or sibling in the military. Long deployments, frequent moves, and Veteran parents with injuries all pose challenges for military children. ARVets recognizes the sacrifices and contributions our military families make, and we encourage others to take time during April, the “Month of the Military Child,” to both celebrate these children and assist them in coping with the added stresses that military life can bring.

support Arkansas veterans

Enhance the lives of veterans and their families with your New Year’s resolutions by donating to ARVets and its programs, either monetarily or through volunteering.

Top on the list of New Year’s resolutions for many people are things such as eating healthy, losing weight, or quitting a bad habit like smoking or excessive drinking. While resolutions involving your physical health are popular, overall happiness comes in a very close second. Studies have shown that charitable giving and acts of kindness boosts morale, gives us positive energy and overall, makes us happier people.

supporting the troops this veterans day

To honor Arkansas veterans this holiday season, a wreath-laying ceremony for Wreaths Across America Day will take place December 14 at the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery.

Veterans give so much in defending the freedom of our country. Some of them never get to return home from the battlegrounds. During the holiday season especially, it is critical that all Arkansas veterans — especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice — are honored and commemorated.

This is why National Wreaths Across America Day, celebrated on December 14, is so important. This Saturday, Americans will visit hundreds of veterans’ cemeteries across the country to place a wreath on each and every grave.
