On a recent Friday school visit, Dr. Brabrand spoke with students from Orange Hunt ES, where about one-third of the students have military connections. Fort Belvoir Garrison Commander Colonel Michael Greenberg, joined the tour.

Orange Hunt is in the process of working toward receiving a Purple Star designation from the Virginia Department of Education. Fourteen other Fairfax County public schools have this designation, meaning the school offers special programs for military-connected families.

COL Greenberg and Dr. Brabrand really enjoyed sitting down with these students to hear some honest feedback about how the schools and the military can work together to support them, and to make them successful, no matter how long they are with us.
