Purple Up Day: Show your support and thanks for our military youth!April 15, 2016
April is recognized nationally as the Month of the Military Child, where we honor the sacrifices of our military students and recognize the unique challenges of their lives.
National Purple Up Day is April 15th. Wearing the color purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine Red, and Coast Guard, Air Force, and Navy blue. The goal of “Purple Up!” is for military youth to actually SEE the support in their school, youth groups, and the community!
