Special 'Sesame Street' show for military kids

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A special show made a stop at Naval Base San Diego Tuesday.

The "Sesame Street" show is especially designed for military children who move between six to nine times before high school. It features muppet Katie, a military child who learns how to adjust to the challenges of moving.

"She finds out during our show that she has to move and Elmo and his friends are gonna help her figure out how she's gonna handle that. And they teach her ways to make new friends and how she can keep in touch with the old friends that she already made," company manager Jeff Mensch said.

Performers have traveled all over the world with this show for the past six years. It's the USO's longest-running, free traveling tour.
