WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – A Wright-Patterson family member will unveil his artwork chronicling his life as a military child during a ceremony at the White House on April 28.

Lucas Robinson, 13, will represent the U.S. Space Force by displaying his artwork in the White House’s East Room alongside children representing the other five services as part of a celebration honoring April’s Month of the Military Child.

The artwork, a decorated mini suitcase, was inspired by a military child’s poem last year about a “military suitcase” that helps enable resiliency among the children of service members. His artwork included representation of his family’s travels in the Army and Space Force with tokens representing the states and countries he has lived in, along with his journey as a Boy Scout and memories of Alaska.

Lucas is the son of Space Force Lt. Col. Daniel Robinson of the National Space Intelligence Center.
