The Marine Corps Logistics Base had their annual Month of the Military Child proclamation and parade on Friday.

The event started with Colonel James Carroll signing the proclamation making it official.

Then, kids, families, staff and more all joined in on the parade to show their love and support for the little heroes.

“There are our new colonels, generals, CEOs, doctors and nurses,” said Dorothy Bryant with the MCLB Child Development Center. “These are our children of tomorrow.”

MCLB will be celebrating Purple Up Day, and they will wear purple for all military kids on April 26.

MCLB has more than 100 kids at the base, and there are more than 200,000 military kids across the county.
