The Military Child

The official flower of the Military Child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere and it is almost impossible to destroy. Its an unpretentious plant yet good looking. It is a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military Children travel everywhere and anywhere that the wind carries them yet they remain hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They may be reluctant but they are ready to fly in the breeze that takes them to new adventures, new lands and new friends.

Experts say that Military Children are well rounded, culturally aware, tolerant and extremely resilient. Military Children have learned from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world and that they come in every colour. They have learned that education doesn't only come from school. They live history. They learn that the survivor needs to adapt, that the door that closes on one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and experiences.
