Your service to your country can be a source of pride for your family, when they know the document our country is based upon.

The US Constitution is literally a framework for our country. More than a document, the US Constitution represents the combined hopes and dreams of our forefathers, to create a freedom delicately balanced between federal and state interests, and individual human rights. Their dream materialized on that day, and it has lasted for over 200 years.

As military, you have sworn your allegiance to protect and preserve the Constitution of the United States... but do you know what your US Constitution says?

MILITARY CHILDREN AND THE CONSTITUTION

A surprising number of American people, military and civilian, are not familiar with this amazing document, this US Constitution, that has so successfully has withstood the test of time. An even larger percentage of today's schoolchildren are unfamiliar with the tenets of our US Constitution.

As members of the US Armed Forces, perhaps it's up to you to assure that the words of the US Constitution do not fall into obscurity. And shouldn't your military children know what you, as military servicemembers, are so closely aligned with?

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is an annual event observed in the United States on September 17 to commemorate our Constitution and to celebrate all those who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become US citizens.

Before 2004, the holiday was known as "Citizenship Day." The national holiday "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day," was created in 2004 with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd.

When it was renamed "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day," all publicly funded educational institutions were mandated to provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution

On Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, an event which falls during Constitution Week, we are charged with the responsibility to not only recognize the anniversary of the nation's constitution, but to understand it completely, as the responsibility of all citizens.
