Being a Military Kid


Being a military kid is nice. I like how I move a lot. I get to see so many cool places. But the downside is we need to move away from our friends. My dad is also gone a lot. But think about it, he is preparing to fight and save people. How cool is that?!

We also get to go to so many parties and events. That's pretty cool, too. I like how my dad comes home after a deployment or field time. I like that because I get to get really hyper.

I have so many friends. Guess how? Because I moved so much. One of my good friends is one of my classmates. He's been one of my best friends since we were 2. We've gotten to live by them in two different duty stations. So, to me, being a military kid is awesome!
