“Purple Up! For Military Kids” is a day to wear purple show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue.
Frequent moves, family separations through deployments, and reintegration following deployments can make school, home, and community-life challenging for military children. Yet, even in difficult circumstances, these youth continually demonstrate resilience and courage.
4-H clubs in New Hampshire developed the “Purple Up! for Military Kids” initiative in 2011 while working with the children of deployed National Guard and reserve component members, and they saw Purple Up! as a way to build awareness in their communities. Purple Up! is now celebrated around the world by military service branches, Department of Defense, governors, states, schools, businesses, and communities.
