well...make sure that everyone is there, then say that you have some really bad news, then say this "daddy wont be coming home,he went to a better place,"then say how he died"all we can do now is hold up. remember, he is in a better place and now he can watch us all the time, some kids dont even get to meet their dads, so your lucky you got to see him as much as you did,your also lucky he was such an awesome dad."
Do they still have their mother ? I guess their mother can find a job to raise her children. I know how hard it is but she can't just surrender. She must move on no matter how hard it is. I know she lost her husband but she still have her 2 wonderful treasure and that's her children.
sorry to hear this. tell them that thier father was a very brave man and that he fought and sacrificed himself for the freedom that we have. remind them that he is in a better place now smiling down on them.
I'm so sorry for yor loss. When my son's father died in a car accident my son was two 1/2, so it's a little different, I just straight out told him his father was dead and wouldn't be coming home anymore. I know it sounds cruel, but I didn't want to tell him Daddy was sleeping and have him have nitemares! And I didn't want false hope that Daddy MIGHT show up. So I was honest and truthful without giving grisly details. It was still hard though. Hope this helps!

Tell them the truth. He died in battle. But remind them he did it to honour your country. To help others. He was a brave man. I am so sorry for this loss. And remember it's okay to let them mourn. <333
