When military service members dedicate their services to protect our great nation, they sometimes leave behind their children, move with their family, or return home physically or psychologically different which cause tension on the children. Reseachers' have shown the impacts of having military parents on children are numerous and evident. The review of literature studies adolescents with military parents and the impact of age development, deployment, relocation, reintegration, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on their well-being and specifically their education. There is also a focus on the double effects of missing parents on African American children. Single parents raise 67% of African American children. Of this number, parents serve their country in military roles to take care of these children. However, the effects are noticeable. The paper also presents recommendations for educators to understand the unique needs of adolescents of our brave service men and women and minimize the effects of the dilemma they face, so they can be successful in school.
