To honor the Month of the Military Child, the U.S. Army broke ground for a new $9.6 million child development center (CDC) April 16, 2010 at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. The 26,000 square-foot CDC facility, using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, or ARRA funding, is designed to accommodate 232 children, ages six weeks to five-years-old.

    Love seeing those smiling faces. I think a CDC for military families is a great idea…

    nice to see a good use of ARRA funding.
    I think the money that goes to military families is very appropriate in this case.

    Spend as much money as possible developing the future leaders of tomorrow. Awesome job, and fantastic to see all those kids looking so happy.
