My life as a military child has been an adventure to say the least. My military life began in Tennessee. I don’t really remember much about my time there, just bits of pieces. During my dad’s tour in Florida, he went to Afghanistan and I was nervous for him. He came home safe and we were happy and couldn’t wait to hear all of the stories. My family’s time overseas would be in Japan for three years. My life changed as soon as my father retired from the Navy. My father is very happy to be retired from the military, and he is glad just to enjoy everybody talking about their times in the Navy, so that he can tell them his stories.
