As an organization that does good things for families and kids, we want to get the word out about what Our Military Kids does for the military community. So we spoke with SGT Eric Boeck of the Texas Army National Guard, about his experience with Our Military Kids!
Hi, Eric! Could you tell me about the non-profit Our Military Kids, and how you heard about them?
It's a great program that my family and I were very appreciative to be able utilize! I heard about them through my chain of command while deployed to Afghanistan. It was too easy! We filled out the application, provided the necessary documents, and they made the process simple and smooth for my wife. We received the grant and the location we used it for was familiar with them and more than happy to cooperate. Too easy!
So it sounds like the process was easy and the program left a good impression upon your family. How did you use it? How did it benefit your family while you were deployed?
It enabled my daughter to enroll in gymnastics- something she really wanted to pursue but didn't fit into our budget.
I'm glad to hear Our Military Kids was there to assist your family while you were in Afghanistan. What would you say to families similar to yours that haven't heard of the organization?
Check it out! It's a great opportunity and it's a great way to honor your kids while they're enduring the state-side struggles of a deployment! Our families go through a lot during those times and they deserve to enjoy opportunities provided by organizations like Our Military Kids!
Thanks for speaking with us, Eric!
Glad I could help!
