What Military Kids Say About Freedom

April is the Month of the Military Child. We think military kiddos are some of the most incredible people on the planet! A group of our contributors asked some of the military kids in their lives for their answer to one simple question, “What does freedom mean to you? The answers will take your breath away! Some are quite profound, some just make our hearts swell with pride, and some are just so cute we challenge you NOT to smile when you read them. We encourage you to ask your military kiddos the same question and post it in the comments!
