Are you a Military Kid?!
Julie Frost is a military kid, too!
Things Julie loved about being a military kid.
While moving can be tough, it is also an adventure! Some people live in their same hometown their entire lives. Julie feels lucky that she got to call lots of different places "home."
Friends Across the Globe
One cool thing about moving all over meant that Julie got to make friends all over the United States. She loves keeping up with her military kid friends on Facebook and through e-mail, even as a grown-up!
Growing up as a military kid taught Julie that, no matter what situation she was in, she could find a way to work through it. Being a military kid comes along with some tough stuff, but Julie and her family always stuck together to make it through the hard times.
Pro at Road Trips
Since Julie's family moved all the time growing up, their family was always taking road trips around the country to visit family and friends. Julie's Mom would always pack the kids a backpack full of fun activities and snacks for the trip.
Daughter of a Super Hero
Julie is so proud to know that she is the daughter of a real-life super hero. Military members do their jobs every day to keep the rest of us safe -- sounds a whole lot like the job of a super hero!
There are some incredible scholarships available for military kids. College can be really expensive! These scholarships help students pay for school. In fact, one of the scholarships that helped Julie go to college was for military kids!

JULIE'S MILITARY FAMILY
Julie's Dad was in the military for over 29 years! He was a pilot in the Air Force and got to fly lots of awesome planes to help keep our country safe. This is a picture of his return from Desert Storm.
Sending Dad off.
If you look closely, you can see that Julie is wearing dance tights. Whenever Julie was missing Dad, she would go to her dance studio to work through some of those powerful emotions she was feeling.
Julie felt lucky to grow up with a big brother (her hero), and two little sisters (the coolest girls she knows). While moving around was tough, Julie loved having her siblings as her teammates.
One proud Momma.
Julie's Mom was the glue that held the whole family together. Here she is, celebrating the day her son got his flying "wings." She is the definition of resilient. "Home" is wherever Mom is.
The tiniest pilot there ever was.
Julie is so proud of her big brother. He has grown up to be just like her Dad -- an incredible, hard-working, kind, and funny guy (who is also a great Dad too!).
The planting of a seed.
Julie's brother loved to wear this flight suit, to match Dad! Who would have guessed that twenty years later, he would be wearing an Air Force flight suit of his very own?!
The Newest "Frost"
Ryan's beautiful bride!
Julie's big brother went to the Air Force Academy, where he met his incredible wife! He has remained active duty in the Air Force, while she serves in the Reserves.
Dad's last deployment.
Here is Julie's Dad in Iraq. This was his last deployment. Julie was in high school during this deployment and was definitely ready to have her dad home again!
