Pioneer Services Celebrates Month of the Military Child

Honoring our Youngest Heroes

The term “military brat” is a term those outside of the military just don’t understand. It’s a point of pride for children of those who serve; a way to signal the common bond they have due to growing up in unique circumstances. To honor those children, April is designated as “Month of the Military Child” and Pioneer Services, the military division of MidCountry Bank, is celebrating by offering helpful information focused on military children and families.

Throughout the month of April the blog at will be updated with five posts focused on military kids:
