On Tuesday, April 15, South Dakota and the nation celebrated “Purple Up! For Military Kids Day!” It is OMK’s hope that everyone wore something “purple” on that day, sending a sign to our military youth that South Dakota honors them and appreciates their contributions to our country. It is OMK’s hope that there was… “Purple, Purple, Everywhere!”
So if you, one of your community organizations, or community members wore “Purple” or did something special for the youth on this day, please let OMK know. If you have pictures of the event, please send those as well and they will be posted on the OMK Website.
On behalf of the nearly 7500 military kids in our state, thanks for helping to make this day special!
