Definitely Affected Me
my dad was only in for 8 years but they were the first 8 years of my life. there were things about the military life that i was subjected to that have left lasting and haunting impressions. we were in another country and there was a terrorist who was a threat to us. we had to ride the school bus with armed gaurds and had quite a few bomb scares where we lived. we were not allowed out after dark during the terrorist threats and there was a short period of time ( days )where we were not allowed out at all. i remember being so confused and scared. i blame these years of my life for the current anxiety issues i deal with. anyone else feel scarred by there time as a child in a military environment?
