We are excited to announce this year's Buddy Poppy Child, Chloe!
Chloe is seven years old and lives in the Kansas house with her mother, Brandy, father, Bobby, and two brothers, Caleb and Chase.
This Fall she will be starting the second grade and her favorite subjects in school are writing and math. When she grows up, Chloe wants to be a veterinarian.
She loves being a part of Girl Scouts, cheerleading, and playing softball with her friends.
"We do lots of fun things at the National Home. I am thankful for living there because we have a nice house and I have made lots of friends to play with" says Chloe.
Chloe's father Bobby is in the Army National Guard and has done tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Later this year will be going to Kuwait.
"My mom says living at the National Home will make things much easier for us while he is gone. There will be State Days and lots of fun things to do until my daddy comes home."
