QOTD – Military Children

This is one major pet peeve of mine.

My father is a career naval officer. He served his twenty years before retiring. I was 17 when he retired. I was there for almost all of his time in the service. I remember at his retirement ceremony wondering why my mother, obviously his wife, received a certificate and special mention at his ceremony, yet nothing was said about us – the children. We moved every three years representing our country as well. And we did not even get a choice in the matter, not that I would have chosen anything else. But I would have liked a certificate or something. Something to remember that part of my life. How about just a spiffy piece of paper thanking the children?
