In case you missed it, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had a photo op with James Nathaniel Richards – otherwise known as “Nate the Great” – on Thursday in Arlington, Va. The two were together for the fifth annual Military Child of the Year Gala.

If the name doesn’t ring a bell, Nate – whose mom, Lorraine, is a USO San Diego volunteer – contributed to this blog last April. He was the 2012 Navy Military Child of the Year and writes about being a military kid on his own blog, natethegreatmilitarybrat.

The USO continues to celebrate the Month of the Military Child by highlighting programs that help boost morale and provide opportunities to military families worldwide like Trevor Romain presentations and kits and United Through Reading’s Military Program.

  3. These merely serves that USA Military Children are the way ahead of USA Military Families.Their Military services and sacrifices seems to lie in their pigeon to create what i call a complete silhouette when it comes to Military Operations.They are the true icon for the next generations around the globe and USO Staff and USO Supporters will always by your side.God will assuage your thews US Senior Squad and Military Children..
