We’re put in a very unique position as the children of service members. From birth, we are part of their journey. One or both of our parents are leaders in this quest to protect our nation and aid the rest of the world. The quest requires us to move every few years to a new base where our parents learn new skills, help build up our defenses and stay on guard. On this mission, we are their companions and support team. We have a big job to do and as someone who’s been doing this job for 19 years, I’ve collected a few pieces of advice that can help make this journey easier, more enjoyable and more fulfilling.
