Celebrate Month of the Military Child with Stars and Stripes!

We invite all military children to share their story with us and our faithful readers. We want to read about your experiences growing up with the military no matter how long or short it is. We just ask that you don’t include any personally identifiable information, only your first name and age.

Submit your stories on now through the end of April. You will be able to read your own stories, and those from fellow military children. A select few submissions will be printed in special inserts in the Stars and Stripes newspaper.

Five High School submissions will be given the chance to be published in our What’s Up magazine. To win a spot in our coveted magazine, make sure your submission is in AP style format, includes your by-line, and is 350-500 words. Please email them to for consideration.

The DoDEA school with the most submissions will be selected to win a $500 AAFES gift card. This prize will be awarded to the PTA/PTO of the winning school. Make sure all of your classmates participate!
