Indiana Operation: Military Kids supports the 21,000 youth of Indiana who have a parent or guardian serving in the military. As the 4th largest National Guard state in the nation, our Hoosier military youth experience difficulties in meeting other youth like them. It is especially difficult when their loved one deploys and nobody understands what they are experiencing.
OMK provides military youth with the opportunity to meet each other and learn life skills in fun and exciting ways.
The Indiana Operation: Military Kids partnership is a shared initiative of the US Army Child, Youth & Schools (CYS) Services and funded by the Army National Guard and Army Reserve in collaboration with Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service.
