Operation:Military kids (OMK) is the U.S. Army’s collaborative effort with America’s communities to support children and youths of the National Guard, Amy Reserve, and Active Duty families impacted by the Global War on Terrorism. State 4-H Military Liaisons lead OMK State Teams in 34 states in partnerships with the National Guard, Army Reserve, the Military Child Education Coalition, Boys and Girls Club of America, the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies, and the American Legion. These and other community state or local organizations are joining the Army Child & Youth Services to support military youths before, during, and after the deployment of a parent or loved one.
