Proclaiming April, 2009, to be the Month of the Military Child.

HEREAS , Thousands of brave Americans in active duty posts in Afghanistan, Iraq and around the world have demonstrated their courage and commitment to freedom by serving in the Armed Forces of the United States of America; and
HEREAS , More than seven thousand one hundred of West Virginia's children have been directly affected by America's commitment to freedom; and
HEREAS , These children are a source of pride and honor to all West Virginians; and
HEREAS , It is fair and fitting that we take time to recognize their contributions, acknowledge their sacrifices and celebrate their spirit; and
HEREAS , Our men and women in uniform need to know that while they are taking care of us, we are caring for their children; and
HEREAS , The recognition of a Month of the Military Child will allow us to pay tribute to military children for their commitment, their struggles and their unconditional support of our troops; and
HEREAS , A month-long salute to military children will encourage local community support to provide direct support to military children and families; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That April, 2009, to be the Month of the Military Child; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Legislature urges all schools and youth organizations to participate in this month long recognition of the vital role played by children who have one or both parents serving in the United States military; and, be it
