To All the Dandelions…


My childhood was defined by military life.  I was an Army brat and I can’t imagine it any other way.  Although my dad isn’t in the Army anymore, I will always be a military child and I will always be able to identify with my fellow military children.  Army life taught me a lot about myself, my family, and life.  The Army made my life as a civilian what it is today and there’s no way I would change that.  So, in honor of military child month, this goes out to all of the military children.  Be proud of what the dandelion represents!
