Month of Military Child: Polk kids take action in school, community


Editor’s Note: In honor of Month of the Military Child, Guardian staff asked the Fort Polk community for nominations for children going above and beyond in school or in their community. We received two nominations. This article chronicles their stories.


FORT POLK, La. — Being a military child is hard. From a young age, they must deal with the emotional and physical impacts of relocating, being away from one or both of their parents during deployments and training, and adapting to new duty stations. Despite these challenges, Adeline Honeysuckle, 6, and Caden Guy, 12, have embraced their lives at Fort Polk, taking it upon themselves to get out of their comfort zones and take action in school and the community.

Adeline, daughter of Capt. Denard Honeysuckle, 3rd Battalion, 353rd Infantry Regiment, and Asia Honeysuckle, collects trash in the surrounding neighborhoods at Fort Polk at least twice a month to help the environment.
