Gen (Ret.), and North Carolina First Lady Kristin Cooper welcomed the Fort Bragg Family of the Year to Raleigh to recognize their selfless service to their community during the Month of the Military Child.

“Our military families embrace every challenge with strength. And, this year, more than ever, they have shown resilience and leadership in the face of tremendous challenges throughout this pandemic,” said NCDMVA Secretary Walter E. Gaskin, Lt. Gen (Ret.). “That’s why during this April’s Month of the Military Child, celebrating and supporting military families is especially important. Today, we pay tribute to military families across our great Nation, and we celebrate the Dixon family for their resilience, positivity, and selfless service.”

“As a military child myself, I know firsthand that military service is a family commitment,”said North Carolina First Lady Kristin Cooper. “There’s no better time to let our servicemembers and their families know how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice. By supporting and recognizing the outstanding courage and strength of military families, like the Dixons, our state and our Nation become stronger as a whole.”
