From the Homefront: 2016 Coast Guard military child of the year

Some important numbers in 17-year-old Keegan Fike’s life as a Coast Guard kid: 125 months of his dad’s deployments and six moves. However, those numbers have not stopped him from thriving in all of the towns in which he has lived and finding ways to give back to the communities that have helped him belong. Operation Homefront named Keegan Fike the Coast Guard military child of the year.
