Day April 13, 2011, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. In honor of the Month of the Military Child, Gov. Sean Parnell proclaimed April 13 as Purple Up! For Military Kids Day and encouraged all Alaskans to show their support for military children by wearing purple, which symbolizes all branches of the military. Daack emphasized the governor’s notable mention of the strengths and sacrifices of military children and their families, who often endure long periods of separation when parents are deployed.
