Military kid says, "Why do you have to go?"
My grandpa is in the Army. He has to go help people on the other side of the world. I don't want him to go. What if he forgets all about me? What if Grammy falls down or the car won't start? Who will stay home with me if I get sick? I want him to stay here with me.
Ask your parent or caregiver about emergency plans if something goes wrong at home while your loved one is gone. Tell them that you want to be a part of the plan and need a job to do, too.
