Letter to the Editor 5-18
(To members of the community:)
How can you support the military families living in your community? The objectives of Operation Military Kids are to give you an understanding and appreciation of the unique stressors that military families face during a deployment and the reintegration process when their service members return. We want to provide an overview of OMK and provide you with tools, skills and resources to understand the effects of deployment and reintegration on military youth in order to build community support networks.
On May 31, at the American Legion Hall, 506 Washington Street, Concordia, Kan., the state OMK team will be conducting a “Ready, Set, Go” training. This training will help the community understand the deployment cycle, reintegration cycle and issues that affect our youth and how you as a community member can help support these military families. Your local Extension Agents along with our state OMK team hope you will attend.
We will begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. Dessert will be provided. Please RSVP to Leca Good, Programs Assistant at (785) 747.7112 or email@example.com or the KSU River Valley District Extension in Concordia at (785) 243-8185 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
