Americans take pride in those who defend our nation and we will pay special tribute on Veterans Day.
[CNN] Veterans’ dedication to protect and defend our nation comes with great courage and sacrifice. And there is a special group of people who will never forget what these men and women in uniform do – their families.
This especially goes for children, who are sometimes without their parents on birthdays, graduations and holidays.
As CNN’s Impact Your World honors our veterans, we talked to some of their kids. In their own words, these children opened up about some of the strains a military family life can bring. They also shared how proud they are of their parents who serve.
