Oregon Child Support Program

National Military Appreciation Month

May is a special month for both those in and out of the military. Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members. For the general public, the entire month provides an opportunity to say thanks to all those, past and present, who have contributed to the U.S. military. The Oregon Child Support Program is proud to salute veterans and members of the military.

  • Ask the family of a deployed soldier to dinner, or ask the family to come over for popcorn and video games.

  • If you do not personally know a service member, contact your local branch of the USO, or veterans hospital.
