Life with a dad working in the army in Afghanistan

Mimi and Ore chat about life with her dad in Afghanistan

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

It's always tough being away from your parents - but when your mum or dad is in a war zone it makes it even harder.

While in Afghanistan for the Newsround special, Ore met a member of the British army out there and then his daughter Mimi back home in Britain.

They talk about how hard it is spending months apart - and how they stay in contact.

Mimi shows Ore one of the letters her dad has sent her, and talks about how special it is when he comes home.
