This time on The Children’s Hour, in honor of Veteran’s Day on November 11, we re-visit the Museum of the American Military Family in Tijeras, New Mexico.

We learn how having a parent in the armed forces can impact a family, especially children. We speak with Dr. Circe Wessner, the founder of the museum, and to Arthur Harris who himself was both a military child, and a military dad.

This show features live music and original compositions from our own Kids Crew member Rowan McJimsey on the keyboards, and is jam packed with great music that is brand new in 2021.
