    March 31 2021 Military Child Resolution 4

    Sumter County Council Chairman James T. McCain Jr., City of Sumter Mayor David Merchant and Shaw Air Force Base’s 20th Fighter Wing Commander Col. Lawrence Sullivan on March 31, 2021, signed a joint proclamation declaring the month of April as “Month of the Military Child.”

    Thursday, April 15, 2021, has been designated as “Purple Up Day” in Sumter and all those who support our military are asked to wear purple to show their support for military children.

    “Our friends at Shaw Air Force Base in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army know they have our support and this is another way for Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter community to show our appreciation for all they do in keeping us safe,” McCain said after the ceremony. “Let’s all wear purple on April 15th because it’s not just the men and women serving in uniform, it’s their families and their children we support as well.”
