Children of Air Force parents being deployed to combat zones got a playful, but accurate experience of what it's like for their fathers and mothers to go to war.

"Operation Hero" was a child-friendly deployment exercise that took place at Barksdale Air Force Base.

130 children and their Air Force parents attended the event Saturday morning. The kids were allowed to wear chemical ware fare suits, ran an obstacle course and heard from an explosives expert.
