    That's a dangerous assumption.  Most of the military kids I went to school with were drugged out, losers who did nothing be spend most of their early 20s in the jail.  Maybe they were rebelling.  But I do know a couple of military children who graduated from college without run-ins with the police...just not a lot of them.

      I would just assume that a military family would have more organiation and discipline due to the parents' carreers. Conversely military life is probably really stressful and that most marriages in the armed forces end up in divorce, so that could have something to do with it. (Not sure if I'm right, but I've heard that nearly 75% of marriages in the military fail).
