In the Military
I'm 9 years old, about to be 10 in September. I’m in 4th grade. My name is Dillan. My dad is a helicopter mechanic. He is deployed for 2 months. I feel lucky being in the military. But being away from my family is hard. I miss my family and old friends. But I make new ones wherever I go. Being in the military has its advantages and some things you might not like. I miss my grandma’s house that was in the woods. I miss my dog who was my best friend. I miss my grandpaw, my aunts, my uncles and my cousins.
