Month of the

Dandelion

Official Flower of the Military Child The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it's almost impossible to destroy. It's an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It's a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They're ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends. To all of our dandelions here at RAF Mildenhall, we are proud of you, we love you, and we know that you will continue to bloom wherever you are planted!
