AFE APPLAUDS MILITARY CHILDREN

As AFE serves its mission of entertaining deployed personnel abroad, we take this month to focus on bringing joy and showing our appreciation to military children and youth everywhere. Your family can attend any of our free shows or tune into virtual tours online. And don’t forget to wear purple as a sign of your support for military kids: It’s time to Purple Up!

MILITARY FAMILY RESOURCES

Being a child in a deployed military family overseas means a long list of challenges and opportunities. AFE understands what it means to be a military family, so we've compiled helpful resources and information for parents and children alike.
