Military brats are serving too — and now they can put their fearless spirit on full display with a free patch from the Fort Leonard Wood Exchange and Vanguard.
The first-ever military brat patch is part of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s celebration of Month of the Military Child. Patches will be handed out to military children while supplies last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 7 at the Fort Leonard Wood Exchange. Kids will also receive a coupon for $5 in Stripes Alterations, allowing them to have the patch sewn on a personal item.
“Military brats put down roots almost anywhere,” said Vanessa Rowland, Fort Leonard Wood Exchange manager. “These children are our nation’s youngest heroes, and these special patches symbolize their strength and resolve.”
Soldiers and military families can contact the Fort Leonard Wood Exchange at 57.329.2200 for more details.
