Today, on the way back from Frankfurt (Germany), we passed a US Military Humvee on the Autobahn.
My 7 year old daughter asked
“Who was in that car?”
And I answered
“What do they do here?”
“They’re on guard”
“Why do they wear helmets?”
And this was where I did not know what to answer. Seriously, in the middle of germany, on a public road, why do they wear helmets? We didn’t have too many roadside bombs around here lately.
Any ideas? Sometimes these kids questions are just too tough.
