South Bend recognizes children during 'Military Kids Month'


April is Military Kids Month and area children were recognized Tuesday by South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Service member's children were invited to the mayors office Tuesday afternoon to be honored.

Mayor Buttigieg read the proclamation declaring this month as Military Kids Month.

He also handed out Hero Packs, filled with items donated from the city of South Bend and other local organizations.

"I feel like America has gotten better and better at honoring the sacrifices our troops make, but we don't always think about the sacrifices we ask these families to make," says Buttigieg.

Nationally, April is recognized as month of the military family.
