10 Reasons You Know You're a Military Homeschooler




#1.  Vacations are 
planned to nearby installations.

Onslow Beach, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina


#2.  Military museums are 
always first on the list of field trips. 

Airborne & Special Operations Museum, Fayetteville, North Carolina



#3.  Even the kids get a "four-day."

If you don't know, you don't know. 



#4.  Homecoming has an 
entirely different meaning.

Welcome home!


#5.  Your kids can name the 
different types of military vehicles.

That's a Chinook.  


#6.  Acronyms are more 
common than text-speak.

PCS, TDY, ACU, etc.  The kids know a lot of them.



#7.  They know rank and 
fight over who is going to be the 
Senior NCO when playing army guys.





#8.  Even the kids have ACU's.

And it seems nearly everyday is dress-up day.


#9.  Your son's imaginary 
friend is named Sgt. Major.


And Sgt. Major always comes over to play with Zander when I've got a list of chores for him.




#10.  You remember travels/previous 
homes based on the size of the PX. 





So, I know these may not be accurate for everyone and aren't limited to military homeschoolers, but there's a good chance that these are some reasons that military homeschoolers may be different from civilian homeschoolers.  Can you add any more to the list?
