Alaskans urged to 'purple up' for military children April 19

The University of Alaska Fairbanks and Alaska 4-H Program will recognize the Month of the Military Child Friday, April 19.

The 4-H Military Program is asking Alaskans to wear purple on that day as a visible way to thank military youths for their strength and sacrifices. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military.

From 1-3 p.m. in the Wood Center multilevel lounge on the Fairbanks campus, UAF will host a reception with purple cake for past and present military children.

The 4-H Military Program, part of the UAF Cooperative Extension Service, provides support and activities to military youth, families and communities.
