Children of Fallen Patriots Day

Date: May 13

Details: To salute the sacrifice of military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, May 13 has officially been proclaimed Children of Fallen Patriots Day.  This date shows appreciation for the young people whose lives were forever changed in support of their parents’ service to our country.  Too often, this tremendous sacrifice is overlooked, which is why Children of Fallen Patriots Day was created to applaud their resilience and strength.
