Military families gathered along the streets to watch teachers from Rivers Elementary School and Airmen from the base Youth Center, 97th Security Forces Squadron and the 97th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department participate in a Month of the Military Child parade on April 28, 2020 at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma. Airmen and teachers from Rivers Elementary drove through base housing while practicing safe social distancing to help celebrate and close out April and the Month of the Military Child. Since school has been out of session due to COVID-19 precautionary measures, the parade gave students the opportunity to see their teachers one last time before the next school year starts. The Month of the Military Child Parade was made possible by the teamwork and cooperation of Rivers Elementary School, the Youth Center, 97th SFS and 97th CES assigned to the 97th Air Mobility Wing.
