    Its fun going around the world but sad when my parents or parent deploy or leave. My parents got a divorce but I have a great stepmom I love her.

    Whenever I move I meet new people and new friends and I also try different foods and move to so many places that I haven't heard of. Right now I live in Okinawa but I am getting ready to go to California.

    Getting to meet and know people from just about everywhere and also getting cool or weird things from your parent when they come back. My dad comes home in two and a half months and I can't wait to see him.

    Growing up this way you meet a lot of people from different places. I've stayed in America my whole life but have known people from the philliphenes, china, Japan, and some from different parts of the U.S. I enjoy being a military teen

    when my dad goes and brings me back things from places i haven't gone to yet. having my dad gone i makes me have more empathy for kids who have had their parents divorced or seperated.

    I feel safe, but still don't understand why my Mom has to leave for so long.

    I get to be treated as a grownup with responsibilities, but I also get more freedom to do what I want as well!

    the best thing about growing up as a military teen is that I feel protected but im still confused about alote of things though but im proud of my dad
