This year, we sent 1,100 kids to NMFA's Operation Purple Camp, spent the summer with 1,800 military families in our Operation Purple Summer Challenge, invested in the futures of +500 military spouses through our Joanne Holbrook Patton Military Spouse Scholarship, talked to +2,000 military teens and young adults as part of our Military Teen Experience Survey, and we even got to celebrate one amazing Bloom teen who was recognized at the White House for International Day of the Girl. And that's before we even get to advocacy! For the 14,000 families who shared their families' stories with us this year, the families willing to speak up about their experience to legislators, policy makers, and the press, and for the supporters and tireless advocates who make our community strong — we are so grateful! Together, we're stronger.
