As a kid my dad was in the military as a combat medic in Afghanistan
And a drill sergeant So he was gone for awhile
And every now and then he would come home and go back so i didn’t see him very often I was a little kid like the age of Five or six
And when he did come home we would make signs and and wait for him at the airport
I would tell all my friends that my dad is back and that being a military kid was hard that’s why they had a club called “We serve too” they would help kids cope with their mom,dad, or other family going to the military.
And when they deployed them put a yellow ribbon on a tree outside the
School to symbolize their parent or family member fighting for our rights
And when they retire the kid and retired veteran can take that ribbon off together.
