Overview

Celebrating the role military families play in the success of America as well as their individual accomplishments, Military Kids Speak by former naval physicist and author Julie Rahm is a fascinating and inspired account of what it takes to be a military kid. It?s a team effort with a common goal; the mission is to describe what it means to be a part of a military family, what it takes to persevere when it comes to deployments, and living abroad. It?s also a candid account of the military lifestyle, and how special it is to be a child of a hero. In two parts and seventeen chapters with titles like ?Military Kids Speak about Deployments,? ?Military Kids Speak about Living Abroad,? and ?Military Kids Speak about Making Friends,? this engaging, conversational book begins with over two dozen essays written by today?s military kids. These young authors, aged ten to sixteen, discuss the rollercoaster ride of military life, it?s perks and privileges, as well as its hardships and heartaches, while the second half comprises twelve in-depth interviews with famous former military kids like Justice Leah Ward Sears, Newt Gingrich, Shaquille O?Neal, and Mark Hamill. Being a military kid is special?a childhood spent with the military is an adventure. This first volume of Military Kids Speak is a narrative of what American kids of servicemen and servicewomen sacrifice for their country day in and day out all over the world?and what they have to say about it.

    Julie's approach sharing military kid's stories will have a bigger impact than most people realize. Growing up in a military family is unique and unfortunately because of the different moves and geographic locations experienced during the formative years growing up as military children; they may not see how valuable their back ground really is. This book shows how they can utilize their own UNIQUE experience to excel in school and in life, both in careers of eductation and in sports or in a trade. Acceptance is so valuable. When military kids read this book they will feel accepted, they will be all they can be - they will feel, "finally, I have arrived" and follow their dreams.
