Military Program Overview

One of the most difficult things a child can experience is having a parent separated from them for an indeterminate period of time for an active duty assignment or a deployment.

Our Military Program helps ease the stress of separation for military families by having service members who are separated from the children they love read children’s books aloud on video for the child to watch at home.

This powerful program is available to all deploying military units and at select USO locations. It provides parents a chance to make powerful and lasting connections with their children and parent from afar.
