From the Homefront: Military Child

From the Homefront: What our kids love about the Coast Guard

Coast Guard kids have to weather a lot of storms, both literal and figurative, as they grow up in military life. The moving, the deployed parents, the new schools, the uncertainty. It can be wearing. In celebration of the Month of the Military Child, we asked Coastie kids (including my own two) what they liked best about Coast Guard life.
