A Walk in My Shoes: Military Life

A video documentary produced by the K-State College of Education.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in the military, or be a military child or spouse?

A decision to help preservice teachers better understand the needs of military-connected students has grown into a documentary with campuswide, statewide and national implications. The documentary tells the story of seven people – soldiers, spouses, college students and educators – who share their perspectives on the dedication, service, rewards and challenges of being connected with the military.

Specific topics include:

  • Deployments
  • Frequent moves
  • Leaving friends, schools, and communities
  • Social/emotional needs of children and teens
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD
  • The power of military bonds made through service
