“Given the challenges of a life so few understand, they remain steadfast. These families not only support America’s service members, they are the living embodiment of the values our Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines are fighting to defend,” Davis says.

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, introduces a new guest blog from the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation (MCSF).

November was Military Family Month, and DVNF sought out MCSF to write a guest blog as a way to capture what that month represents. MCSF is the country’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children.

In the blog, MCSF President and CEO, Margaret B. Davis, highlights many of the difficulties that military children face. Due to a military parent’s job, the families often have to move multiple times, which is one of the major difficulties of growing up in that environment.
The blog also discusses how a major battle injury of a parent can make things even more difficult for these kids.

“Given the challenges of a life so few understand, they remain steadfast. These families not only support America’s service members, they are the living embodiment of the values our Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines are fighting to defend,” Davis says in the blog.

“I sincerely thank our friends at MCSF for taking the time to offer a unique perspective on our blog,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “As Marine parent, I can certainly empathize with the stories of these kids, and think more people should recognize that military service demands tremendous sacrifices from the entire family.”

The blog is now posted in the DVNF Empowerment Hub.
