  • Sun Shines on Day Kids Visit Workplace

Those simple words were repeated again and again by girls and boys who came to work with their moms and dads. Their day began at the post parade field where Team Redstone put on a show of military hardware displays and demonstrations.

A total of 1,075 children participated in Bring Your Child to Work Day, an annual event organized by the Aviation and Missile Command. With sunny skies overhead, there was plenty of educational fun for youngsters of all ages at the parade field. The Redstone police provided their always-popular police dog demonstration.
