Life with a dad working in the army in Afghanistan

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.
