Why is he wearing a helmet

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

“US Soldiers”

She asked

“What do they do here?”

I said

“They’re on guard”

She asked

“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.
