National Military Family Association
The National Military Family Association is an organization with strong grassroots support balanced with professionalism that makes us a leader in the field. We speak up on behalf of military families and empower husbands, wives, and children to understand and access their benefits. Each year, hundreds of military spouses receive our scholarship to help them on the path to a successful career. What started as traditional summer camps now includes teen leadership programs, family retreats, overseas day clinics, and camps for families of the wounded. The Operation Purple® Program has grown exponentially in its 6 years of existence.
