Certificate of Appreciation for KIDS!

How many times have our children stood by silently while mom or dad receives an award or medal or special recognition for their service?  I know my children have done this -- and then they fight to be the first to look at daddy's cool certificate! Well now you can request a certificate of appreciation for YOUR military child! 

And just in time for April, the month of the military child. 

Blue Star Families and Operation Appreciation would like to provide all of our military families and service members the opportunity to recognize their outstanding military children through our Outstanding Military Child/Teen Award Certificates. Service members are often recognized with certificates and medals for their outstanding service, and we at Blue Star Families would like to provide the opportunity for the outstanding military children in our lives to receive that same recognition. We want our children to be able to hang their own certificate on the wall along with those of their parents.

And this year, we've made it easier for large groups, like Family Readiness Groups or Military Impacted Schools, to request the special certificates. It is our hope that these larger groups will find the opportunity to thank their military kids in a special way whether it is a special school assembly or a shout out at an FRG meeting. Email Maria at ApOpp@bluestarfam.org to get your group set up for this unique opportunity.

Every military child is eligible for this award. We want for every military family to tell their child how outstanding and important they are!

Request your child's certificate below:

This is OUTSTANDING!!! The Child or Children go through just as much as we do being the child of the military. It is only correct we acknowledge their sacrifices as well!! Bravo Zulu on this and thank you to those who support it.

Love this idea! Thank you very much for doing this. I am having some trouble doing one for my son. Is there someone I can contact to ask some questions? Thank you!
