Senate adopts measure Designating April 15 as 'Purple Up! For Military Kids Day'

Thu, 15 Apr 2021 12:19:12 CDT

Senate adopts measure Designating April 15 as 'Purple Up! For Military Kids Day' The Senate adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 8 on Thursday, which designates April 15 as “Purple Up! For Military Kids Day” in Oklahoma to recognize the sacrifices made by military families and the important role military children play in the armed forces community. The resolution is authored by Sen. Roland Pederson, R-Burlington.
April is the Month of the Military Child, which was established in 1986 by former Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger. Purple is used as the color to signify Military Kids Day because the color indicates all branches of the military are supported. Air Force blue, Army green, Navy blue, Marine red and Coast Guard blue all combine to create the color purple.
“Our military kids make a tremendous sacrifice, spending their childhoods moving from base to base, attending numerous schools and often spending significant time away from one, or either both parents,” Pederson said. “While we often celebrate their parents, it’s important to recognize their sacrifice to our country as well. I’m thankful to my colleagues in the Senate for supporting this resolution and our military children across the state.”
