Throughout his 12 years in school, he changed schools 8  times.
He moved 6 times with 2 of those being international moves.
He left behind too many good friends to count.
He is the epitome  of a military brat.
He didn't ask for this life, but he lives it with pride.
He packs his bags, he moves, he makes friends, he is happy, he is heartbroken, he is sad,
he loves with all his heart,he thrives no matter where he is.
 
Today he graduates.
Today this chapter of life as a military brat is coming to an end...
Next month he will start a new chapter.
In his new chapter we will be watching from afar.
Watching him thrive, watching him succeed,
Watching him become a man that this world can't wait to meet!

I love you More Boy 1.
Congratulations, you make your Mom proud.
I am a military child
My hometown is nowhere, my friends are everywhere
I grew up with the knowledge that home is where the
Heart and family are, with no dependence on the dwelling.
Mobility is my way of life.
Some would wonder about my roots,
Yet they are as deep and strong as the mighty oak.
I sink them in quickly, absorbing all the area has to offer
And hopefully giving enrichment in return.
Travel has taught me to be open,
Shaking hands with the universe.
I find brotherhood in all people.
Farewells are never easy
Yet even in sorrow comes the strength and ability to face
Tomorrow with anticipation.
If when I leave one place, I feel that half of my world has left,
I also know that the other half is waiting to be met.
Friendships are formed in hours and kept for decades.
I will never grow up with someone, but will mature with many.
Be it inevitable that paths part,
There is constant hope that we will meet again.
